How to Upgrade from Free to Premium Softaculous
Posted by Daniel Scope on 04 December 2011 11:13 AM

***This applies to our VPS and Dedicated Server clients only. All of our other services come with Softaculous Premium for free.

If you are on a VPS or Dedicated Server and wish to have Softaculous Premium you first need to order it as an addon in the Client Portal. Once you do, fill out our Server Addons Request Form and we'll issue a Softaculous license and then direct you to this article to complete the installation.

Your server already comes with the free version of Softaculous by default. You simply need to update the license and install the rest of the scripts.


1. Login to WHM on your server. You can do this by going to your Client Portal and clicking on the "WHM" button or by visiting your WHM directly through the IP Address listed in your original Login Information Email.
2. Once logged in, scroll to the very bottom in the left side panel. Once logged in, click on the link that says "Softaculous - Instant Installs"
3. At the bottom of the page, there should be a link that says "Refresh license". Click this link and it should reload the page and your license should now say "Premium"(Image Example).
4. Now that your license has been upgraded, you will need to click the "Software" link on the black bar. here you will simply click the checkbox in the top right to select all the software and then click the "Update Settings" button and this will install the rest of the scripts. Please wait until the page is done load, that means all the software has been installed. (Image Example)

Now you can access all your scripts by logging into your cPanel and clicking the "Softaculous" icon. Please submit a ticket to our support department if you have any questions or issues.
