Welcome to the Freeola customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with installing Drupal on Freeola's Web Hosting. For more support topics, please visit our main Support Page.

The Drupal software is only available when using a Freeola SSD Pro Hosting package.

Drupal 8 has not been updated for more than two years and may no longer be maintained or supported by the script vendor.

  1. The Softaculous Installer within cPanel offers the quick and easy installation of Drupal. To access this installer, firstly log into your cPanel by visiting the Websites & Hosting section of your MyFreeola Control Panel then clicking SSD Hosting then Quick Login.
