The beauty of Softaculous Premium, is that it allows people to install and try out Open Source software, by automatically installing it in Softaculous Premium with just a few clicks. Essentially it makes the installation faster. However due to the complexity of some open source software and it being constantly modified, and the configuration of the software to different configurations of server, bugs can occur during the installation process. Therefore we recommend that clients only use Softaculous Premium installed software, to try it out, and to see if the software meets your requirements. We don't recommend clients use a Softaculous Premium installed application for production websites, although in many cases it may be fine. For production websites, we would recommend that you manually download the software from the developers website, and install it manually using FTP. The developers of the software should have easy to follow instructions showing how to do this.

Softaculous Premium is being continuous updated, to more current versions
of the scripts. New software is also being added to Softaculous Premium

however won't update any software installations that you have
already made through it, and you will need to do this manually

that you visit the developers website/s and join any mailing
