We are starting to replace Fantastico which we have been using for years with Installatron on our shared servers.
Like Fantastico Installatron is an auto-installer to let you easily install the most common scripts directly into your webspace.
Some of the benefits of Installatron over Fantastico and the reasons we choose to make the change include:
- Installatron has the fastest new-version-updating.
- Users can create and restore snapshots/backups of installed applications at any time.
- Installatron will offer to create a backup prior to upgrading an installed application so that the upgrade can be reverted if something doesn’t work out.
- Users can import existing manual installations into the Installatron system for easy backups and upgrading.
- Supports root-directory and password-protected-directory install locations.
- You can automatically, and quickly install and keep the following software updated automatically via Installatron:
Crafty Syntax Live Help
Feed On Feeds
Help Center Live
php File Manager
Power File Manager
Search Engine Project
Simple Machines Forum
We look forward to your feedback and thoughts on whether you like our choice to use Installatron.
