Softaculous 4.9.3 Released

The Softaculous Team announces the launch of version v4.9.3.Full Story

Hi,

The Softaculous Team has released Softaculous 4.9.3

1) [Feature] : Added SitePad Website Builder in Softaculous. SitePad is a SaaS based drag & drop website builder which publishes static content in the users hosting account. SitePad comes with 290+ professional themes, 40+ widgets like Rich Text, Paragraph, Image, Video, Social Media, Blogging options and more. SitePad is based on Freemium model with 15 themes in free version and 290+ themes in premium version. Learn More.

Note : The final website created by SitePad is published to the web hosting account where the user hosts the domain. SitePad is just an editor where users can create and edit their site and is not involved in hosting websites.

2) [Feature] : Added Clone in Softaculous Enterprise.

3) [Improvement] : Softaculous now works on PHP 7.1

4) [Improvement] : Added options in CLI Backup utility to allow backup for only database or only directory or full installation backup. Guide.

5) [Feature] : When the Softaculous records did not have correct database credentials of an installation (which is possible when the user had manually changed the login credentials) Softaculous was unable to perform actions like backup, clone, etc. thus reporting error to manually update the database credentials in Softaculous records. This has been fixed and Softaculous will detect the update database credentials from the configuration file of the script.

6) [Improvement] : Softaculous Remote can now add/edit domains, install/upgrade apps, backup/restore installations even for the domains that do not have the updated nameservers. This is possible with the help of a filter in Softaculous where you will need to return the IP where the domain should point. Guide to configure the filter.

7) [Task] : Added Filters post_loadinstallations, post_listinstallations, pre_upgrade_outdated_plugins, pre_upgrade_outdated_theme.

8) [Task] : Improved the UI for Ratings and Reviews tab on scripts page.

9) [Bug Fix] : In cPanel, fixed the top scripts category in Dark and Light style in paper_lantern theme.

10) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous Remote, the backup option while upgrading an installation was not working. This is fixed now.

11) [Bug Fix] : The OpenSans font used in Softaculous did not have the Latin Alphabet 2 due to which some characters in languages like Czech, Polish, etc were loaded in Verdana. The OpenSans font has been updated to load the Latin Alphabet 2 characters correctly now.

12) [Bug Fix] : In some cases, Remote Import was not working if the source installation had a .htaccess which had a rule to prevent access to PHP files that are not a part of the installation, database password had > character or the source installation did not allow access via http. These issues have been fixed.

13) [Bug Fix] : The ‘noemail’ parameter in Softaculous WHMCS auto install module was designed to stop Softaculous from sending the email with installation details when the script was installed using the WHMCS module. Due to recent changes this was not working. This has been fixed now.

14) [Bug Fix] : In some cases, the requirement check while upgrading a script installation failed on Plesk panels. This is fixed now.

4) [Feature] : Added CLI utility to list the installations. The installations can be sorted script wise or user wise. Guide.

5) [Task] : The backups created by Softaculous before auto upgrading the installations were not deleted causing several backups. The backups created by the previous auto upgrade utility will now be deleted when the auto upgrade is successful. Eg: Backup created when upgrading WordPress to 4.7.4 will be deleted when the installation is successfully upgraded to WordPress 4.7.5
Note : The backup will be deleted only if the upgrade was successful and only the backups created by auto upgrade utility will be deleted.

6) [Task] : Added filter “upgrade_softaculous_to_version” where you can define a specific version to upgrade to that version Softaculous. Guide.

7) [Task] : On cPanel servers using EasyApache4 MultiPHP Manager, .htaccess file is created in the root of each domain/subdomain by cPanel to handle the PHP version selected. If the .htaccess file contains only the content for EasyApache4 PHP version then Softaculous will not prompt the user with an error that the .htaccess file already exists while installing the script in the documentroot of the domain, the file will be overwritten and the EasyApache4 content will be added back.

8) [Bug Fix] : Softaculous was unable to detect the PHP version when installing a script on USER MOD domain on cPanel servers using EasyApache4 MultiPHP Manager. This is now fixed.

9) [Bug Fix] : On cPanel servers when EasyApache4 MultiPHP Manager and CloudLinux CageFS both are enabled for a user, Softaculous was detecting the PHP version incorrectly. This is now fixed.

10) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous Remote, the scripts not requiring a database were triggering error and could not be installed due to a change in Softaculous 4.8.9. Also a similar error occurred on the Edit Installation page for scripts not requiring database. This is fixed now.

11) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous Remote, Auto upgrade for WordPress Plugins and Themes was not working. This is fixed now.

12) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous Remote, the “Backup Directory” field was required on Edit domain and Add domain page even when the backups and restore was disabled from Softaculous Admin panel. This field will not be displayed now when the backups and restore is disabled.

13) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous 4.8.9 the clone process was pushed in background, the API call for the same returned as task completed even when the Clone was still running in background. We have made the changes in the API to return the task key in the “done” key in the API call response. This task key can be used to get the current progress of the task by making an API call to the task list page. Guide.

14) [Bug Fix] : Softaculous was not storing the list of files associated with the installation when the installations were imported from the local server from Softaculous Enduser Panel as well as Admin Panel. This list is used for tasks like installation’s removal, cloning, etc. The list will now be saved while importing an installation as well.

15) [Bug Fix] : In CentOS Web Panel, Softaculous was not accessible from running CentOS Web Panel on a custom port (other than the default port i.e. 2030).

16) [Bug Fix] : When using Custom backup directory setting from Softaculous Admin panel the backups count was not calculated correctly. This is now fixed.

17) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous Remote, during installation when using an existing database to install a script if the tables already exist in the database, an error occur stating that the tables already exist. However this error triggered clean utility which was deleting the existing tables from the database. This is now fixed and such tables will not be deleted.

18) [Bug Fix] : Due to some changes in CloudLinux some of the functionalities in Softaculous such as auto upgrade of installations were failing. This is fixed now.

19) [Bug Fix] : On servers using CloudLinux, when installing scripts that require “pdo_mysql” extension to be enabled Softaculous was reporting “pdo_mysql” extension as disabled even when “nd_pdo_mysql” extension was enabled. This is fixed now.

20) [Bug Fix] : In Softaculous Remote, the permissions for the directories that require to be set recursively were not set recursively when the installations were made via SFTP or FTPS. This is now fixed.

21) [Bug Fix] : When creating backups on Remote Backup Location was causing an error when having special characters such as ‘@’, ‘:’ in the FTP username or password. This is now fixed.

22) [Bug Fix] : In ISPManager, the database name and username prefix was not generated correctly by Softaculous when the control panel username had characters ‘.’ and ‘-‘ causing error while connecting to the database. This is now fixed.

23) [Bug Fix] : On the Edit Installation page, Users were shown an option to install the WordPress plugins which are disabled from Softaculous Admin Panel -> Software -> Advanced settings page. This is fixed now.

24) [Bug Fix] : Auto backups were not performed for PERL scripts. This is now fixed.

25) [Bug Fix] : When accessing Directadmin control panel over https the script Reviews and Ratings page not loading due to the browser not allowing loading mixed content since the ratings and reviews of the script were fetched via AJAX over http URL. This is fixed now.

26) [Bug Fix] : The Installation Statistics were not displayed correctly on Softaculous dashboard in Simple theme. This is fixed now.

27) [Bug Fix] : In cPanel, Softaculous ACL (Plans) while adding/editing a plan, under Packages List, an extra package named “extensions” was displayed which is not a control panel package. This is fixed now.
