Installing Joomla without Fantastico

Fantastico, a feature in cPanel that helps you easily install programs to your account, is no longer available. As of September 17th, 2012, Fantastico has been replaced by Softaculous.

This article is being kept in our Support Center for our VPS and Dedicated Customers who may still be using Fantastico. For all other users, please see our Softaculous software installation guide for more help with installing programs such as WordPress and Joomla.

You can install Joomla, a great content management system (CMS) manually, without using Fantastico de luxe. There are a few more steps involved such as setting up a databse for Joomla to use, and downloading the software from a third party website.

For more information on installing Joomla manually without using Fantastico de Luxe please watch the video above.
