What is Installatron Plugin?

Installatron Plugin is a turn-key, state-of-the-art web application automation solution (also known as an auto installer or script installer) for web hosting control panel platforms.

Once installed on a control panel server, Installatron's powerful, easy-to-use user-interface integrates seamlessly, enabling instant, one-click installs and upgrades, backups and restores, and other advanced features for a premier collection of only the best applications on the web.

What are the system requirements?

Designed to maximize compatibility while minimizing requirements, the only requirements are a server with a supported control panel installed and elevated server privileges to complete the setup process. These control panels are supported:

Thorough testing is completed on hundreds of server configurations; on Linux, CloudLinux, Debian, FreeBSD, and Windows, with and without php-fpm, mod_ruid2, suphp, fastcgi, suexec, suhosin, safe_mode, open_basedir, on many VPS systems, including but not limited to OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, VMware, Xen, KVM, UML, Hyper-V, and no conflicts arise from operation alongside other auto-installers and common third-party software. The general rule is that all server configurations supported by a control panel are also supported by Installatron Plugin.

What is the recommended system configuration?

The web applications installed by Installatron Plugin have their own web server, MySQL, and PHP requirements. The recommended server configuration to enable wide application compatibility is as follows:

Incompatible applications and application versions are handled gracefully and will appear disabled, so it's perfectly acceptable if a server doesn't meet the recommended configuration.

Is it called Installatron or Installtron?

Contrary to the popular misspelling, it is called Installatron. Think of installation with an r instead of an i.

Can I recommend a web application be added?

Absolutely. We're constantly evaluating new web applications for inclusion. However, only the best applications are accepted; applications that are complicated to use and applications that do not offer unique functionality complicate the website owner experience and are therefore avoided. It's also important that applications have at least a few mature translations available as Installatron Plugin is used worldwide.

To make a recommendation, open a ticket. Be sure to include a summary of the advantages the application provides.

How often are the application installers updated?

Critical updates are guaranteed to be tested and deployed within hours of release by the application vendor. This includes non-business day releases.

Non-critical updates weigh speed with stability, and in some cases the developers actually let us know when they think the latest version is ready to be deployed to Installatron. Standard releases for stable or popular web applications usually follow the "critical" update path, while larger version changes (and certain applications) might be given some breathing space to ensure stability.
