How can I install Fantastico F3?

Before you begin the Fantastico F3 installation process, please make sure you meet the system requirements and have an active Fantastico license for the server on which you plan to install our product.

Simple installation method using cURL or wget:

Log into your server via SSH as root and execute ONE of the following two commands (depending on whether you prefer to use cURL or wget):

For cURL:

curl | /bin/bash


For wget:

wget -O - | /bin/bash

Either of these will run a script to install Fantastico F3 automatically.

If you have problems using either of these methods, you can try installing Fantastico F3 manually.


Manual installation method (executed via SSH as root):

mkdir --parents /var/netenberg/fantastico_f3
cd /var/netenberg/fantastico_f3 && curl -O
cd /var/netenberg/fantastico_f3 && tar --bzip2 --extract --file sources.tar.bz2

cd /var/netenberg/fantastico_f3/sources && /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php index.php license

cd /var/netenberg/fantastico_f3/sources && /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php index.php optimize

cd /var/netenberg/fantastico_f3/sources && /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php index.php scripts


Fantastico F3 should now be installed if all went well. If you encountered any errors, make sure you meet the system requirements and that cPanel itself is working properly. If you've checked everything and are still having problems with the installation, please open a support ticket using your user account and we will assist you.

If you prefer us to do the installation for you, we can do that also, just open a support ticket using your user account (all submissions handled that way are SSL secured). In order to install Fantastico, we will need root access to your server, so please be sure to take appropriate security precautions both before and after providing us access.

NOTE: Installing Fantastico F3 does not remove the classic Fantastico v2.x product. If you have it installed before you install Fantastico F3, then you will see both Fantastico and Fantastico F3 links in cPanel. If you'd like to remove the classic version of Fantastico v2.x, then please follow THESE directions.
