I have released version one of my WordPress Auto Install Script for cPanel. This script can be run from /scripts/postwwwacct to automatically download, install WordPress and create the required database and database username. No 3rd party licenses, scripts, FTP sessions. No outdated versions, always grabs the latest version from WordPress.org This script is available upon request for £50. Get in touch for details.
