Grav (from Gravity) is a community driven, easy to use open source Content Management System (CMS) project that originated from RocketTheme. In this tutorial, we shall show you the step-by-step guide on how to install Grav CMS using Softaculous.

Login to your cPanel and click on Softaculous App Installer.

Click on the left menu bar and search for "Grav" under the Portal/CMS section. Click on Grav.

You shall be presented with the following page. Click on the Install Now button.

Now you will have to select a protocol, domain and directory for your installation:

Choose Protocol – HTTP or HTTPS depending on whether or not your website has SSL installed.
Choose Domain – The domain on which you wish to use the application
In Directory – Choose a custom directory for Grav or leave empty if you want to access Grav via just the domain name.

Create your administrator account:

Admin Username – The username you will use to login to the admin area
Admin Password – The password for your admin account
Admin Email – The email address connected to your admin account

Password must contain at least one number and one uppercase and lowercase letter, and at least 8 or more characters

Press the Install button at the bottom of the page and in just a few seconds you will have Grav ready for use. A complete installation will show you the front end and back end login URL as seen below
