development and Softaculous will adjust.

cloned installation. The guide is available here.
Note : Clone is available only for a few scripts at the moment. We will
be adding it to more scripts regularly. The list is available here.

Admin can limit the minimum required strength for password.

15) Check HTTPS connection : If user selects to install a script on the
https protocol, Softaculous will display a warning to the user if a
Trusted SSL certificate is not found on the domain.

16) Detect real version : Admin can now determine the real version of
installation(s) and update Softaculous records from Softaculous Admin
panel -> Installations (The records are outdated in case the user
updates the installation manually). Here is the guide.

17) When editing an installation in Softaculous, the script version of the
installation will be detected and also prompted to the user IF it does
not match with the Softaculous records. The user will get an option to
update the version in the Softaculous records.

18) Users can now choose to prepend a prefix for Admin Username field for their endusers on the script install form. Click here for documentation.

customized folder name. It is now fixed.
