2.13.11. Automatic CMS installation

A number of hosted CMS can be installed in a fully automatic mode, without the need to manually upload files to the hosting, unpack, etc.

If the required CMS is not in the list

In this case, you can install the required CMS manually by downloading the distribution kit from the official CMS website and deploying it on the hosting using instructions. Instructions for manual installation of specific CMS: DokuWiki, Drupal, Joomla!, Magento, MediaWiki, MODX, Moodle, October, OpenCart, Open Journal Systems (OJS), PrestaShop, Webasyst, WordPress, Bitrix.

Important points:

  • For installation Moodle and PrestaShopas well as normal operation WordPress, OpenCart and Moodle a working domain is required, correct directed to a hosting account.
  • WordPress: When installing older versions in wp-config.php the line is added define( 'AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED', true );... This avoids the automatic update that is triggered when you log into Adminpanel, and use exactly the version that was installed. For the most recent version, auto-update is enabled by default.
  • OpenCart: Installed in English only. Localization can be done by instructions.
  • Moodle: Installed in English only. Localization can be done by instructions.
  • PrestaShop: Installed in English only.
  • October: Only version 1.XX is supported. Since version 2.0.0, the October platform is paid and is installed only with Composer.
  • DokuWiki: Since authorization does not work over HTTP, the site will automatically be enabled redirect on HTTPS.
  • The CMS automatic installation system only simplifies the installation process, the subsequent operation and updating of the CMS depends only on the CMS itself or the site owner.
