Installatron response

You know we’re on a winner when that happens.

I agree with @Aussie on the “don’t say cat till you’ve caught it”.
But…
I also think that when people like Softaculous are going to that see installation made the early bird with ClassicPress they are going to “at least” keep an eye out to see what happens and maybe they are going to think about having their own installation script.
AND
Don’t forget that if you are there, you are in the same shop as WP. I mean, ClassicPress install icon will be near WP’s install icon on a shelf. In front of everybody. Plus CP is “new” so it gives the idea of “more recent and advanced tech”.

That’s not what I meant. I mean you know what we’re doing is working when people like Installatron are going to add us.

It’s taken 6 months of to-ing and fro-ing but we got there in the end. Persistence is key. But to be fair to Installatron, they have been very helpful.

There’s just one little niggle to sort out and then it can go live. The little niggle is simply that the default tagline in the installer is set to “Just another ClassicPress site” instead of " Another great website powered by ClassicPress".

And yes…Softaculous next :grinning:

I don’t generally use installers, and none of my current servers use installatron, but it good to see and certainly helps raise the profile of ClassicPress.
And I agree with the tagline change. I don’t like the “Just a” tagline whether for a website or people applying it to themselves, “I’m just a …” Be what you are and be proud of it.

Just be aware that cPanel will need to update Installatron before it appears as an option, and I’m not sure how often that happens or whether it rolls out differently for different hosts.

Wouldn’t want you to do a premature tweet. :grin:

[…and speaking of itchy fingers, I am itching to try that new Update Manager. :wink: ]

You know how to poop a party don’t you? :rofl:

Installatron updates are usually done nightly via cron and anyone running WHM can update Installatron manually at any time.

Also, Installatron isn’t just a cPanel thing. It also works with DirectAdmin, Plesk and Virtualmin…so between the four of them, we should see it coming to a hosting company near you soon. :slightly_smiling_face:

Just to keep you posted. There is a slight delay in adding ClassicPress to the Installatron catalog.

Changing the tagline from “Just another ClassicPress site” to “Another great website powered by ClassicPress” was not quite as straightforward as first thought. Installatron discovered a bug which prevented the tagline from being changed.

The bug has now been fixed and the CP install script is now awaiting internal approval which I’m told should take approx. 4 days.

So, within the next week or so… :grinning:

We have good news.

It’s there. We’re finally live in Installatron v9.1.48-3.

I’ve asked them to change the category label from “blog” to “cms” but that’s a minor issue.

One down…

I’ve just been removing all my sites from Softaculous and adding them in to manage by Installatron. Super easy if you haven’t done it before. Click on the CP icon and then use the little menu icon to right of “Install this application”. Select “import existing application” and follow the prompts.
