    I've been looking for some kind of one-click app installer for ISPConfig (something along the lines of Softaculous, but preferably open-source). I've found lots of mentions of things like the APS Installer, but this seems to be deprecated. Is there a replacement or alternative system to this that I can use?

    Not yet. I am looking into a new system, but not sure if/when that would get done.

    Alright, thank you. I did try and use Softaculous but that doesn't seem to work with Nginx and it wasn't FOSS either.

    If there are any sponsors for it, it might be possible to spend more time on it. If anyone is interested, feel free to get in touch.

    I might be interested in doing something, if you could give me a rough idea of the cost of sponsorship and how long it would take for a basic one-click installer (let's say one that can install WordPress).

    I understand none of this has a simple answer, but a rough estimate would be appreciated.

    We are discussing this in the core dev team, we'll get back to it ;)

    This is something I am also very interested in. I want to go 100% open source, and as much as Softaculous has been good to me, it doesn't quite fit into my ethos.

    I was thinking of starting a project to create an open source alternative, however, my problem is time. I also need to brush up on my PHP as the last time I really worked heavily in it was version 5.2, I am busy doing a full course on version 8.0 and 8.1, and boy has things changed.

    My vision is a community-driven "package manager" type system with a simple and straightforward interface. People can build their "packages/scripts" for various web apps, and upload them to a central repository, where others can then install them.

    Executing the various commands like wget, curl, untar, etc is not that complicated. But I have a long way to go before I can even consider this. Also, I would need to learn how to integrate the solution into ISPConfig.

    If there is anyone else interested in this, drop me a DM. I do log in now and then, so don't be offended if I don't reply promptly.

    I actually came on here this evening to post a query if there was already a solution. But found this thread so I simply added to it.
