How to install SMF from Softaculous

1 Scroll down until you find SMF in the list on the left.

2 Click SMF.

You will be taken to the Overview page where you can view more information about this particular software.

3 Click the Install tab.

If you have multiple domains associated with this account, you can select where to install it.

The next two boxes require a directory and database name, neither of which should exist on the server.

Under Settings, enter a Site Name and Board Email. These can be changed later on from the application's admin panel.

Type the desired admin username and password that should be used. Also, enter a Real Name that will be displayed and the admin's email.

In most cases, the defaults above should work fine.

4 Click Install.

After a moment, the software will be installed.

5 Once finished, you can view your new site by clicking this link.

Here is our new forum which is ready to be used.
