The web installer has been completely re-made from scratch with a better user interface, server requirements check and improved error handling. It aims to offer a more friendly installation process and to detect any server issue prior purchase.
The cherry on top is that the new web installer works for both free and paid Chevereto editions and it will be used to upgrade from free to paid directly within your dashboard panel.

This is for real, on the demo server it takes about 2 seconds to install Chevereto!
