Can I create a custom script installer? How?


what’s needed to create a custom script installer for a PHP-based application (here: Group-Office)? I’d like to update Group-Office just like the others via “update scripts”.

  • Commercial version:
  • GPL'ed version:

Any chance to share the effort with others? Regards,



There’s some docs on creating script installers here:,script_installers/

Also, you’re welcome to look at all the scripts that come with Virtualmin as examples, they’re in $WEBMIN_HOME/virtual-server/scripts/.
