Installing Applications with Installatron

Installatron (in cPanel) allows you to automatically install dozens of applications. When you use Installatron, you don’t need to worry about moving files, creating databases, or doing the initial configuration. It’s all taken care of for you.

Installing Applications Using Installatron

To get started you’ll need to login to your control panel by going to

Here you’ll log in with your LSU Sites username and password.

Once logged in you’ll be on the homepage of your control panel (cPanel). Under “Tools,” you will see a section of your cPanel labeled Applications.

To explore all the applications you can install with a single-click, begin by clicking the “All Applications” button.

Look at all those apps! You can install any of them with Installatron.

When you find one you want to install, click it’s icon, and then click “install this application.”

A page will appear with a number of settings you can choose/change. The image below shows these settings; here is a rundown of them:

    • Location: You’ll need to choose where to install your new application. You can install it at the root of your domain or in a subdomain (which you need to set up first). In addition, you can place your application in a folder (in either your root domain or a subdomain)
    • Version Information: We recommend choosing the default version.
    • Updates & Database Management: By default, the system is set up to automatically upgrade (and create backups upon upgrading) all applications. We recommend NOT changing these options.
    • Username/Password: An username/password will be automatically generated for you. You can choose to change this if you like. Remember then so that you can sign in to the app later.

Where’s my new application now?

Locate and launch all of your installed apps via the “My Apps” button on your cPanel.
