Installing Joomla! for the first time is very easy.
Joomla!’s built-in installer makes setting up your new site a breeze.
Before we start installing Joomla!, there are a couple prerequisites that need to be met to install successfully:
- Hosting – whether you have a dedicated server, or shared hosting plan, you’ll need some sort of web hosting that meets the following requirements:
- PHP v. 5.2+
- MySQL 5.04+
- Apache 1.3
- MySQL Database – you’ll need access to a MySQL database, as well as the following credentials.
- DB Name
- Host Name
- FTP Client – for transferring files to your server. If you don’t already have an FTP client that you use, we recommend Filezilla (ensure transfers are set to Binary)
- Latest Release of Joomla! 2.5.X – you can find that here Download .
With these requirements met, and resources in place, we are ready to install Joomla
To begin our installation, we’ll first need to move our Joomla installation package to the server. This can be accomplished by simply moving the downloaded package to your server, then unpacking it. Or you can unpack the files on your local computer, then move the Joomla installation over to your server. Either way, the Joomla installation needs to be unpacked in the root of your site.
Caution – if you unpack the files on your own computer, then copy them to your server, be sure to move only the files contained INSIDE the Joomla package. If you transfer the Joomla folder as well, your site will be accessed at yoursite.com/Joomla instead of yoursite.com.
The Joomla installer now makes it very easy to install Joomla. With the files transferred to your server, access the Joomla installation through your web browser by entering the address of your site, for example http://www.example.com.
