Installatron

 Not recommended

Unfortunately nowadays the service is not usable much and they are very slow1 , 2 patching the installs with new security releases. Try to find an alternative until this improves.

About

Installatron is one of the 1-click installers which supports Tiki installation and upgrades (updates).
"Installatron Remote is absolutely free for unlimited installs and imports, backups and restores, and up to three (3) upgrades per calendar month."

 Please Note

Unfortunately it counts failed upgrades (e.g. due to insufficient space on disk) too.

Installing Tiki via Installatron

Installing is a breeze and everything works well via FTP or SFTP (creating special FTP user and password for use with Installatron recommended whenever possible). Here installing of Tiki 12.1:

Importing existing Tiki installation

Again, FTP user must have write access to the destination dir.

Backing-Up

When backing up make sure FTP user can write in the destination and you have enough free space or you will get error there is no space for the backup.

Updating

Manual updates are very easy. Here is a screenshot of updating (imported) Tiki 9.6 to 9.8:

1 Ticket submitted on 2017-01-28 with the following response: "I've added these TikiWiki updates to our internal todo list, though I can't give an ETA at the moment unfortunately because we are totally swamped with catch-up work to do. But hopefully the person who handles the installers will spot them there and add them in.". Reminder sent on 2017-03-17 with no reply as of 2017-03-24 :-( luciash d' being
