How to install PrestaShop with Softaculous
Softaculous is an installation program available to you when you sign up for the InMotion Hosting web hosting service. It allows you to save a lot of time by providing a quick installation process as well as update and backup services. The following tutorial will walk you through the process of using Softaculous to install PrestaShop on to your webserver.
Setting up PrestaShop with Softaculous
- Login to your cPanel then look for the Softaculous icon in the Software/Services section.
- Click on the Softaculous icon to open it, then select E-commerce in the menu in the left hand side of the screen. When the drop-down list opens for the e-commerce programs scroll down until you find PrestaShop and click on it to select it. You can also click on the icon for PrestaShop that appears in the right hand side of the screen if you see it first.
- The next screen that appears is the Install screen. The table below will break up each section and describe the settings in detail:
- After you have finished filling all of the fields, click on the INSTALL button at the bottom of the screen.
This will complete the installation process. You will see a Softaculous-generated screen similar to the following after the install has finished.
The links given in this final screen will go to the PrestaShop storefront and to the administrator dashboard as per the settings that you selected in the install process.
The next step is to log into the PrestaShop 1.5 dashboard.

I am using prestashop 22.214.171.124 I am using loopia.se is as host, the site is not fast
please vist my webshop www.hbgteknik.se
I am looking for better service, if I move my website to yours server, will the site be faster?

That question is very ambiguous as we do not know the details of your server and site. You will first want to ensure your site is optimized and running the bast it can on its current server.
You can also use online tools such as GTMetrix.com to give further advice. Once you have that done, if the server is still slow, it is possible a move would increase your speed.

I just found out that Prestashop was installed already during my in motion hosting account set up.
The trouble is that, i went to the admin to access my prestashop dashboard and it requires logging, i have used my email and password but prestashop does not recognised it.
I would like to know which password in motion hosting used to set up the installation?

When PrestaShop is automatically setup, it uses your hosting account's primary email address and sets a random password. You will simply need to use the reset password link on the login page. (The link leads to the 1.5 instructions, but they are the same for 1.6)

"Note that you can select version 220.127.116.11 or 1.4 of PrestaShop."
Does this means i can't use my prestashop 1.6 theme with your hosting?

Hello, T. Pereira,
