Softaculous Doing Great

We added Softaculous recently as we were becoming more frustrated by the lack of updates to Fantastico.  To go along with Fantastico’s lack of scripts it was months behind in some cases on versions of scripts which is unacceptable when dealing with exploits.  It appears the only thing Fantastico really has going for it these days is it’s name as we still have customers using it over Softaculous even though Fantastico might even be installing an older version of a script.  So it’s definitely not something we’re removing as a feature as it stands on it’s brand and if we did remove it we’d be losing customers.  So just how great has Softaculous been over the first week of us using it?  Well here’s a summary of all the script updates we’ve seen:

LifeType 1.2.10 - Successful phpMyFAQ 2.6.2 - Successful DokuWiki 2009-12-25c - Successful Piwigo 2.0.8 - Successful phpMyFAQ 2.6.1 - Successful Noahs Classifieds 4.1.0 - Successful PmWiki 2.2.10 - Successful NetOffice 2.5.3 - Successful Serendipity 1.5.1 - Successful MediaWiki 1.15.1 - Successful

That is pretty amazing in comparison to Fantastico which never could have so many updates out in a just over a week.  We just hope more customers will make use of Softaculous over Fantastico which is just alive due to reputation not actual quality of the software.  Which is unfortunate for Softaculous which is really impressive with their script library and how quickly they can update scripts.
