Automatic install of custom Joomla


Recommended Posts

Hi-- I've seen an auto-install webhook module for WHMCS that will install Joomla 3, but it appears that it's not well supported and may be abandoned.


I'd like to create a similar module that will install a customized version of Joomla with a few components already built into it, so that after a client purchases a hosting plan Joomla will be ready to go with basic components installed.


I'm a pretty experienced PHP developer, but I am having a real hard time finding any clear docs of how to create such a module. Can anyone point me to an example, as well as the specific hook I'd want to use?

In past I used the method that I'm going to explain you (it still works but I no longer need it). In a directory on my server I've all installations of different Joomla (vanilla and with mods), Wordpress, Drupal etc. Once a client purchases it, I automatically upload the requested package AfterModuleCreate hook point. It's possible because, since the hosting plan has been already created, I know its IP, username and password to upload and unzip everything via FTP. The result of this is that as soon as you visit the website you can immediately start the installation.


Of course mine is a simple approach because my needs were simple. I don't know if you need something more.
