What is Fantastico?

Fantastico is a script library that many web hosts install on their web servers. It allows you to install complete web applications to your website with a click of a button. These web applications could be a blog, a forum, a photo gallery, a content management or something else.
Why use Fantastico?

Fantastico makes it almost trivial to install certain web applications. It will create a database, copy the files, adjust permissions, and set up the configuration files. It also allows you to quickly upgrade your web application when an update is released. This is a very important feature. Why? 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.
