good day, I'm not an expert in Softaculous, but I need to know if the following is possible:
I have a Joomla template, and I want to do is include this template in the installation of Joomla Softaculous.
The best thing would be to create a Joomla installation and put a different name for example: my template - Joomla, then when my customers install this version of Joomla will be able to use my template.
If that is not possible, then I would like to know how to add this template to the default installation of Joomla Softaculous.
Greetings.

Hi,

This is possible.
But rather than adding it to the existing Joomla package you can add it as a Custom Script.
You may refer to the following page on how to make a Custom package:
http://softaculous.com/docs/How_to_make_a_Package
and also you may go through the following page on how to add a custom script:
http://softaculous.com/docs/Adding_Custom_Scripts

thanks for your answer, clear to me that if possible, but the main problem is I'm not a programmer and am not able to perform the procedure of creating the package.
Is it possible to send me the install package, Joomla 1.5 and 2.5? thus I shall replace only the files and parameters that are necessary, the procedure described on the page you sent me I understand but I can not do with my installation of Joomla, if you could give me these packages joomla 1.5 and 2.5 would be nice for me and anyone else who needs to do a similar process.
Greetings and thanks for your help

Hi,

You can download the packages from your server:
Joomla 2.5 - /var/softaculous/joomla16/
Joomla 1.5 - /var/softaculous/joomla/

Hello, and thank you for your help, i am not a programmer and my language is not english so was hard to me find the ssh codes to download the files, but i think more people maybe have the same questions so i will share whats i did:

i use this comand:

first this:

cp /var/softaculous/joomla16/* /home/user/public_html/somedirectory/

this command will copy all the archives in joomla16 and paste in a directory in a public_html of some user, but in joomla16 u will have an other directory called images, so u need ru this command:

cp /var/softaculous/joomla16/images/* /home/user/public_html/somedirectory/images/

then i did use filezilla to enter in the public_html of the user and then to the somedirectory and download the files and custumized

i hope this can help some one, and i wanna know if is posible create a new category?

Hi,

Creating a new category is not possible at the moment.
We will try to add this in the future versions.

ok i understand.
i have troubles with the custom script, i will tell u whats i did:

i login in my server with ssh and access to /var/softaculous/joomla16/ , i did download all the files are:

configuration.php
fileindex.php
import.php
info.xml
install.js
install.php
install.xml
joomla16.sql
notes
sample_data.sql
upgrade.php
upgrade.xml
and a folder called images with a png file
and the zip file called joomla16

so i have a clone installer file, that means in the archive i have the template, so i didnt touch any file, and i just remove the zip file called joomla16 and replaced with my file, is a joomla 2.5 installation pack with my template, and then i upload all the archives to /var/softaculous/joo1/ (i did create this folder before)

then i go to whm > puglins > softaculous and i did create a custom script, but i can see the script in cpanel, i login in cpanel and i can see the script, but when i try to install say:

The following errors were found :
The installation package could not be found!

so i dont know if i am ok with the process, can you help me, is ok my process or whats should i do?

Hi,

The name of your zip package should be joo1.zip and the name of the SQL file should be joo1.sql

Please try using this and it should work.

ok, that works fine, i mean i can do the installation, but with out the template, i did check the sql file, and i found some lines say insert: template name, etc...., i think i need add the template manually here, because when i finish the installation and go to template manager i cant see the template.
Really thank you for your help, now i know more many things.
If you can offer a custom script installation services in the future will be exelent, because me for example, i need put this joomla with the template to offer as an extra services to my clients.

Hi,

You will have to Insert the templates in the SQL file.

>>If you can offer a custom script installation services in the future will be exelent, because me for example, i need put this joomla with the template to offer as an extra services to my clients.
Are you referring to adding an option to select a template to install on the Install form ?
