Direct Admin reseller series

15. Administering Installatron installations

This demo assumes you've already logged in to Direct Admin

Now let's learn how to manage the Installatron installations in our reseller plan

1) Click the Installatron Administration link

2) Click the Edit Script Groups link here

This is the main administration page for Installatron

Installatron is an auto-installer program, that allows your customers to install dozens of free scripts and programs, with just a few clicks

Let's take a look at the administration options available to us

3) There are currently no script groups created..... so let's go ahead and create one

From here we can create a script group, which will allow us to allow certain customers access to only a specific selection of scripts in Installatron

This is useful if you want to be able to charge a fee for making certain scripts available to your customers, or if you want to make certain scripts only available to customers that have your largest hosting plan, etc.

4) Enter a name for this new script group

5) Let's assign this script group to all customers having the Bronze package..... click here

We can setup this new script group so it's available to specific users.....

..... or available to customers who have the same account package

Scroll down...

6) Let's make a custom list of available scripts..... click here

7) We now must choose which scripts are to be available to these customers..... choices are all scripts, no scripts, or a custom selection

8) Then choose the scripts you want to make available

Scroll down...

9) When finished, click the Save button

10) Let's return to the Installatron Administration page

That's it! We've successfully created a new script group, which is listed here on the script group page

11) Clicking the Build Lists link will rebuild your installer list files

12) Now let's click here to View Install Overview

13) Let's return to the main administration page..... click here

This page lists all the installations of Installatron scripts in all accounts in your reseller plan

Scroll down...

The Upgrade Email Notification tool is useful in that it allows you to automatically notify customers of the availability of new versions of their Installatron scripts

14) When finished click the Save button

Message of the Day allows you to include a message at the top of your customer's main Installatron page

If List Builder is enabled, installer list files will be created, and can be incorporated into your websites to advertise the scripts available through Installatron

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to manage Installatron installations in your reseller plan, and how to create custom script groups making only certain Installatron scripts available to certain customers
