Pros

Overall, I am very happy with WordPress and highly recommend it to everyone who wants to have a bang for their buck. It's fully functional and a very powerful CMS app.
The plugin marketplace is great, you can always find a great and suitable theme for your website needs. WP is famous enough to have integrations with almost every service and company out there.
I love being able to preview any and all changes before committing to it. Also, the plugins are a godsend, it makes life so much easier when dealing with special features.

Pros

The icons that accompany the breakdown of the library's portions help display exactly what you need, which is nice.
I was impressed by the amount of software that this tool can install on your hosting server.
A leading solution provider but still without a phone number.

Cons

Cons: if you change you ip on a linux server it is a pain in the ass to get running again. But in the end i got it.
Pricey plugins, I also hate that the plugins aren't regulated meaning that a plugin can stop updating and I'm forced to either find a new one or brace myself of being hacked.
Some of these plugins and themes are poorly coded and as such creates vulnerability concerns; allowing malicious inclusions and attacks on a standing website built on the framework.

Cons

It runs along with wordpress, doing what needs done. Ve not had any error signs saying anything was wrong.
No value to client - company with bad management.
Very bad management client suffers and they don’t care of SOS.

Best to install wordpress for my website

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

With Softaculous installing WordPress never been this easy, you just need a few clicks and boom you have installed Wordpress on your website as easy as that.

Cons

The User interface is kinda old I hope they improve the User interface

Makes installing Wordpress easy!

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The only software I've ever used Softaculous to install is Wordpress. If your web host has cPanel and you are looking to install Wordpress on your new site, then Softaculous is the way to go. One click and a few fields to fill out and Wordpress is yours!

Cons

Honestly there is nothing I can think of. I have NEVER had to contact their customer support, so I have no idea if they are good or bad.

Works great

Reviewed a year ago

It runs along with wordpress, doing what needs done. I've not had any error signs saying anything was wrong.

Pros

I used this along with wordpress, when I had a question they answered quickly and clearly. Since it runs sort of in the background, I know it reccommended using it. I'm still not sure of it's purpose. Since I don't have any error messages, I assume it is doing what it is supposed to.

Cons

I don't have any complaints. It does what it should.

Great Way to Easily Install Programs

Reviewed a year ago

My experience involves installing programs with Softaculous through a dashboard offered by a web host (a few different hosts). Softaculous makes it easy and fast.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use Softaculous. Most of my experience with it involves installing WordPress and I've found it easier to install with Softaculous as compared to some of the options offered by web hosts.

Cons

There is really nothing I didn't like about Softaculous. I use it for installing programs on my web hosting account, it works great and it's easy to use. No cons.

Softaculous is an app that if very helpful with Wordpress installations.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I like that the library pairs well with web host management systems and is also self-explanatory to use. The icons that accompany the breakdown of the library's portions help display exactly what you need, which is nice. It's the best way to generate the installation of web applications to a website, particularly Wordpress.

Cons

I like how large of a variety Softaculous encompasses, but I do think it can get kind of confusing if you're not used to working with the applications. Because they partner with so many apps, it can be overwhelming to determine the function of each.

Speed up setup/testing of web CMS

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I was impressed by the amount of software that this tool can install on your hosting server. I've used it to install Wordpress and it relieved me from many boring tasks, and it's especially very easy to test a large number of web applications. Definitely get a hosting that provides Softaculous. It even manages the backups!

Cons

Sometimes updates mess up with the installation and backups stop working. During an installation you may be asked questions that need some knowledge to be answered, and the default answers might not suit your needs. If you're not a provider, Softaculous is not something you should consider installing.
