SiteGround no longer provides Fantastico autoinstaller on the servers. The new installer now available is Softaculous. In extensive tests it has proven to match our outstanding service quality standards better, by providing more applications, faster version updates and better support. You can read more about why SiteGround now uses Softaculous in our blog. You can check our SMF Softaculous Installation tutorial for more details on how to install the script with a few mouse clicks.

Still, if your hosting provider supports Fantastico you can follow the instructions published below.
