One Click Installs

Out dated information, please note that this article was created when we manually would select the applications we would install. We now have a new app store style library which let any application developer include their app to be installed. This means that you will see more apps in our One-Click Install library then you will see listed here. Please login to your webpanel for a list of applications available to install.

Here at DreamHost we know that programs are a tad bit difficult and and take some time to install so we have built in a great new feature into our Web Panel called "One-Click Installs".

All you have to do is select which One-Click Install you would like, where you would like to have it installed and that's it. We do the heavy lifting while you sit back and think of how you can show off your new program that we're installing for you. You can access the One-Click Installs on the WebPanel in the "Goodies" section, of your Webpanel.

You can suggest new one-click install packages, and vote for suggestions made by others, on your Web Panel's Suggestion page.

Completing One Click Installations

Once you've chosen and installed it from the panel, the DreamHost one click installer does all the hard work for you. Once it's done, the One Click Installer system sends you an email containing any further instructions you need to follow in order to complete the installation of your chosen application.

Please note that, if you did not receive the install email that has the instructions on how to finish the installation, you can always check your "Support History" in the Control Panel (Control Panel -> Support -> Support History) for an archived copy of that email.

If you're receiving a MySQL error immediately after you have installed the One-Click application, it's often because the database has not yet been set up completely. Just wait a few minutes; when you return to the page your installation will probably be be ready and waiting for you.

If a MySQL error indicating the the application cannot connect to the database persists, double check to make sure you used the proper MySQL Hostname, Database Name, MySQL User Name, and MySQL Password when completing the installation and/or contact Tech Support for further assistance.
