Discourse Softaculous Integration?


#1

Softaculous is a tool that some hosting services and cPanel systems use to ease the process of installing big site services (such as phpBB, another forum service). I was wondering if it would be possible for Discourse to integrate their system into Softaculous. It would make it possible to add Discourse to cPanel-enabled services. Just wondering because it could have permission problems/security concerns.
If you need info on Softaculous, you can find some sources and info on what is it with a simple google search.

(As an example i’m running a free .ml site through Byeghost with active domain stuff, and was trying to get discourse on it but without having a paid VPS or SSH access that’s practically impossible right now)

Unlikely unless it deploys Docker containers. That is the only supported Discourse install.
