Mastering Installatron: A Guide to Installing and Uninstalling on Linux Servers

Installatron is a powerful web application installer that simplifies the deployment of popular scripts and CMS platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and many more. It's a valuable tool for web hosting providers and system administrators who want to automate the process of setting up websites and applications for their clients.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps for installing and uninstalling Installatron on your Linux or FreeBSD server.

Installing Installatron

  1. Download the Installer Script: Open your terminal and run the following command to download the Installatron installation script:
  1. Make the Script Executable: Give the script execute permissions:
chmod +x
  1. Run the Installer: Execute the script to begin the installation process:
./ -f

The -f flag indicates a forced installation, which might be necessary in some cases.

The script will automatically install Installatron and its dependencies.

Uninstalling Installatron

If you need to remove Installatron from your server, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the Core Components: Execute the following commands to remove the core Installatron files:
rpm -e installatron-server rm -fr /usr/local/installatron rm -f /etc/cron.d/installatron
  1. Delete User Install Data (Optional): If you want to completely remove all traces of Installatron and the applications it installed, you can delete the user install data. Exercise caution here, as this will delete all data associated with installed applications.
rm -fr /var/installatron

Important Considerations:

  • Backups: Before installing or uninstalling any software, including Installatron, it's always a good practice to back up your server's data. This ensures you can easily restore your system in case anything goes wrong.
  • Dependencies: Installatron may rely on certain dependencies (like PHP or MySQL). Make sure these dependencies are installed and configured correctly before installing Installatron.
  • User Data: If you decide to remove user install data, be absolutely sure you don't need any of the installed applications or their data.

By following these instructions, you can confidently install and uninstall Installatron on your Linux server, giving you a versatile tool for managing web applications efficiently.
