This tutorial will show the steps for a Softaculous automated installation of SilverStripe. The actual process is quite easy and it will allow you to install the script within a few minutes.
First and foremost, you need to access the Softaculous service within your cPanel account. FastComet allows the use of Softaculous on all shared hosting plans and at no additional cost.
You need to log into your cPanelaccount and then navigate to the Software/Services section in it. Locate the Softaculous icon and click on it to proceed further.
The next step is to locate the script that you would like to install on your account. Softaculous provides 250+ available scripts for easy and automated installation and they are categorized by their functionality. The categories are located on the left-side of the screen, which will make things easier to review. You can find SilverStripe in the Portals/CMS section.
Once you select SilverStripe from the list of available scripts, you will be taken to a brief description of the product. Here, you can see what the script is actually built for, review a Live Demo, Screenshots, Raings, Reviews and much more. This will help you decide if you really want to use SilverStripe for your website. IF you do, simply click on the Install button to proceed.
The next step of the SilverStripe installation through Softaculous is the most important one. The reason behind that is the large number of different options for the new installation. Those options will allow you to configure the new website per your exact needs.
The first section is called Software Setup and it is regarding the actual configuration of your new website.
The SilverStripe installation via Softaculous is now completed successfully.
You can take a note of the main URL for your new website and start building your new system using FastComet as a hosting provider. Enjoy!
