I’ve already installed my application manually – can I import it in Softaculous?


Yes, you can add a manually installed application to Softaculous. The two main benefits are:

- You will be able to upgrade the software from the Softaculous interface, directly through your web browser.
- You will be able to create/restore backups of the application from Softaculous, again via your browser.

To import your existing installation please follow the steps below:

   1. Access your cPanel and follow the link to Softaculous from the "Software/Services" tab;
   2. Find the application which you want to import from the left menu. You can also use the "Search" functionality;
   3. On the software page you will see several tabs. Click the "Import" tab which will open a new page "Import Software";
   4. On the new page you will see two sections – "Choose Domain" and "In Directory". If your application is installed in the public_html folder and is accessible via your main domain name leave the fields empty and click "Import". If the application is in a sub-folder type the name of the sub-folder in the "In Directory" field and click "Import";

Check out our Softaculous hosting package which will allow you to use all the great features that the Softaculous application provides to you.
