One Click Install WordPress & Other Web App
If your web host does not come with Fantastico or other automatic web application installer, you would know how tedious it is to do the job manually.

Just upload the Instant Install php installer to the directory where you want to install your web application, point your browser to it, select your desired web app, and lastly, sit back, relax.
Instant Install will then download and extract the files to your server and then forwards your browser to the setup. For now, Instant Install supports the installation of 9 web applications, namely:

@Vincent, Yes, it was EasyWP. Looks like people at Easy WP decided to add more script. This is only good for beginners.
