SimpleScripts is a script library that allows you to install complete web applications or scripts to your website with a click of a button. These web applications could be a blog, a forum, a wiki, a content management or anything else.
SimpleScripts makes it almost trivial to install many web applications. It will create a database, copy the files, adjust permissions, and set up the configuration files. It also allows you to quickly update your web application when a new version is released. This is a very important because new bugs or security flaws are found in web applications all the time. If you don’t quickly update your copy of the application to the newest version then you could be attacked.
SimpleScripts allows you to install several different scripts including:
Form and Surveys
They also add new scripts regularly. An updated list of scripts that can be installed by SimpleScripts can be found on its official web site.
Other script installation software, such as Fantastico, takes a long time to update their scripts when a new version comes out. This is partly because of the creator of Fantastico but also due to your web host. When a new version of a script is released to fix a security flaw or add a feature. If your web host doesn’t update often, then you will be using a vulnerable application on your server until they do. SimpleScripts doesn’t really have this weakness because the web host doesn’t have to update their scripts manually and SimpleScripts tries to release the new versions within 24 hours.
You can learn more about SimpleScripts by visiting its official web site or by playing around with it on your own web hosting.
