Bug Fixes in Softaculous 4.2.7:

  • The cPanel user’s email was stored by default in user details file in Softaculous. Now it will be stored only if a user has specifically changed the email address in Softaculous Enduser panel -> Email Settings.
  • Fixed the Auto Install API and SDK to work with Directadmin.
  • Script installation was not allowed if the user wanted DB prefix to be empty. This is now fixed.
  • On the Task List page hyperlink was displayed even for the paths. This is fixed now.
  • Softaculous used to send update notification for the installation(s) s) that were manually updated i.e. when Softaculous records were outdated. Softaculous will now find the actual version of installation(s) and if it does not match with the existing records the Softaculous records will be updated and notification(s) will be sent only if installation(s) are still outdated.

Softaculous Auto Installer apps library  has 300 scripts and 1115 PHP Classes.
