Our hosting service supports the installation of Web Applications. These are open source website applications that can be automatically installed and kept updated on your hosting service. We maintain a list of popular applications, for example WordPress, joomla and Drupal. You simply need to select the application you wish to deploy on your web space and follow the instructions on the wizard.
Accessing the website applications list
To view a list of applications that can be installed on your website, login to your control panel and select Applications from the top menu.
You will now see list of available web applications. Selecting any of these will start the installation process
Installing a web application
Once you have select a web application to install, you will be taken through an installation wizard. Follow the instructions on screen to complete the installation. Please ensure that you keep any administration username and passwords that you create as part of the installation safe.
Please note, by default the application will not install as the home page for your website. Instead it will install to a folder (for example, wordpress will install to www.yourdomain.com/wordpress). If you wish for it to be the homepage look for the URL path field whilst going through the installer and delete the entry until just the / (forward slash) remains.
Alternatively, if you'd prefer a different path (e.g. www.yourdomain.com/blog) enter it in this field. Any files you've previously uploaded to your webspace at this location will not be overwritten, but will not be accessible.
