Installing XOOPS

 You can have XOOPS (eXtensible Object Oriented Portal System) up and running on your web site in minutes by using the Softaculous application installer in cPanel.

To install XOOPS using Softaculous, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the SOFTACULOUS APPS INSTALLER section of the cPanel home screen, click any of the options under Categories. The Softaculous installer page appears.

    • It does not matter which option you click under Categories. All of them start the Softaculous installer.

  3. In the Search text box, type xoops and then press ENTER.

    • Alternatively, you can use the navigation pane on the left side. To do this, click Portals/CMS, and then click Xoops.

  4. Click Install. The installation page appears.
  5. In the Choose Protocol list box, select the protocol.


    Note: If you have an SSL certificate installed on your site, select https:// or https://www. If you do not have an SSL certificate installed on your site, select http:// or http://www.



  6. In the Choose Domain list box, select the domain for installation, or accept the default value.
  7. In the In Directory text box, type the directory where you want to install the application, or accept the default value.


    Note: If you want your domain name to go directly to the application, make sure the In Directory text box is blank.
