In the past, adding a content management system, chat forum, blog, survey, mailing list or photo gallery to your website was a technical challenge that often required you to hire a techie. Those days are now over.

It is much more convenient and certainly faster if you are able to install these tools yourself. Now you can, and the best part, it is free. Simple Scripts offers powerful, one-button install scripts that can be used for...

  • Blogs - WordPress, B2Evolution and TestPattern
  • Client Management – vTigerCRM
  • Content Management Systems - Drupal, WordPress, Joomla and Modx
  • eCommerce - Magento, ZenCart, OSCommerce and OpenCart
  • Forms and Surveys – LimeSurvey
  • Forums - phpBB, bbPress and PumBB
  • Mailing Lists - DadaMail, phpList and poMMo
  • Photo Galleries - Zenphoto, Coppermine and Pixelpost
  • Project Management – Mantis
  • RSS - Gregarius and SimplePie
  • Utilities - phpMyFAQ, ExtCalendar and phpFreeChat
  • Webmail – Roundcube
  • Wiki - WikkaWiki and PmWiki

Compared to Fantastico, Simple Scripts offers a much more user-friendly service by allowing you to select the version of the script you want to install. Fantastico, unfortunately, always installs the latest version. This is a problem if plugins and modules are not yet updated.

BlueHost has even helped make things easier by developing Simple Scripts into their hosting control panel, allowing you one-button install of your favorite scripts for FREE!

Step #1

Once you have purchased your BlueHost account, login to your control panel and scroll down to the Software/Services category and click on Simple Scripts:

Step #2

Next you simply click on the link next to the script you want to install. For example, if you wanted to install free Drupal content management system you would simply click on the Drupal icon or link:

Step #3

Next, click on 'Install Now':

Step #4

In the drop down box you would then select the version of Drupal you would like to install, where you would like to install it and then agree to the terms and click 'Complete'.

NOTE: If you are unsure in which directory you should install your script I would recommend calling BlueHost at 1-866-401-4678. They offer exceptional 24/7 telephone support and usually pick-up within a few rings.

As you can see, Simple Scripts puts you in control, allowing you to save time and money and giving you the flexibility to install the scripts you want without the need to hire a techie.

BlueHost has made Simple Scripts available and also offers US-based 24-hour technical support and they are more than happy to answer your questions.

    Hello James,
    Yes I know you wanted to go down the Drupal content management route for your website, but you say that Word Press only installs the latest version of its software.

    Well there is nothing wrong in installing any version of Word Press direct to your hosting website , using the 5 minute download and set up concept.

    I hope that Drupal is getting visits from Googlebot on a regular basis, as does Word Press

    Hi James:
    I have also used Drupal in the past, but am so glad that some of the features that were part of Drupal are now plug-in options for WordPress. WP is much more user friendly, and I enjoy working with it. Plus, when I outsource projects, and there is a need to upload the work to my WP site, the providers usually know how to use WP.
    BlueHost has been great too. I have used their online support, and also called them when needed. Always very responsive.
    As always, thanks for your help!

      Yes, we use Drupal, but I am much more of a WordPress fan. I gree that it is so much easier to use. The plugins are great. The themes are in abundance and the third-party support is terrific.
