How to Change the Branding for Softaculous in WHM

  • Log in to WHM as a root user.
  • In the search field in the top left corner of WHM type in Plugins.
  • The menu for Plugins will appear in the left column of the page. Click on Softaculous - Instant Installs.
  • You will then be shown the front page for the Softaculous application. In the menu bar at left, click on Settings.
  • Scroll down until you see the section labeled Rebranding Settings. Here you can change the following values:

    Site NameYou can fill in any name here. By default it is set to InMotion Hosting
    Logo URLThis the URL leading to the graphic for your logo. The easiest way to verify this path is to copy the path into an internet browser window and then see if the image appears.
    Favicon logo URLThis is the logo used in the tab section of your internet browser.

    The Logo URL for Scripts Demo and Custom link for Scripts Demo Logo are generally left blank as they don't have an effect on the branding.

  • Once you have your Site name and logo URLs in place, then you can log in to cPanel and see branding present at the top of the internet browser page.
