This tutorial explains how to import a program into Softaculous. This is good to know if you have manually installed a program available through Softaculous applications and want to use Softaculous management tools like backup, restore, clone, etc.
You can also import programs installed using Fantastico
How to Import Programs Into Softaculous
- Log into your cPanel
Go to Software > Softaculous
Click All installations if you want to see what you have already installed
- Choose the program you want to import. In this example we’re using a WordPress installation manually installed on our server
Identify the location of your manual installation. (In this example, our WordPress files are in a directory called WordPress.)
Softaculous will now install all the necessary files. Under All installations you should now see your WordPress installation as if you had installed it through Softaculous.
