A new toolbar will help users install popular PHP packages with a few mouse clicks.
ResellersPanel, the leader in private label reseller web hosting automation, has recently announced the introduction of a dropdown toolbar menu, named Elefante Toolbar, which allows a direct installation of almost 40 open source PHP scripts on customers' websites. The instrument is available in the File Manager, Domain Manager and Subdomain Manager sections of the customers' Web Hosting Control Panel.
The users only have to choose a script, pick a desired host location where it will be installed and simply hit the 'Install' button. Thus, they don't have to waste time choosing a database, path, password, username, etc. because the toolbar generates all this information itself.
However, for customers who desire and have the necessary technical skills to perform a more advanced script installation setup, the Elefante Toolbar menu provides a quick 'Advanced Installation' shortcut link to the main interface of the Elefante Installer section of the Control Panel where they will be able to handle all script configuration settings and specifications by themselves.
There they will see a list of all the available scripts and their mouseover tooltip descriptions, grouped in the following categories: Ad Management, Blog, Calendars, Classified Ads, Content Management, Customer Support, Discussion Boards, E-commerce, Groupware Tools, Guestbooks, Image Galleries, Web Hosting Tools and Wiki. Upon an installation of a Joomla 1.0, Joomla 1.5, Moodle, WordPress or a 4images script, users are given the chance to preview a bouquet of free web design themes and install any of them together with the chosen script.
Nick Blaskov, CFO of ResellersPanel, said that the users can now install popular PHP packages in seconds without any script installation knowledge because the Elefante Toolbar will handle all the configuration settings instead of them. He added that those who are more advanced can elect to manually install the script of their choice by specifying certain admin details in the installation wizard, such as domain name, database prefix and destination folder.
The users, Mr. Blaskov continued, will be able to also select different design skins for their websites from the included template download menu and explore their layouts via the respective thumbnail images provided, and concluded that ResellersPanel will continue to automate the process of reselling web hosting services and all related activities in the future as well.
