Easiest Way to Install Joomla For Dummies
See,the easiest way to install joomla is by using fantastico provided in your hosting control panel.
But you should be sure that your host has provided you with Cpanel to access the hosting account.
I am assuming that your host provides control panel and fantastico. What is Fantastico? Well,Fantastico is a section of the Cpanel which provides easy access and installations for scripts like wordpress, joomla, wiki,etc.
Now,here's what you need to do to install Joomla:-
Step 1: Log in to your Cpanel with the username and password that your hosting provider gave you.
Step 2: Once you have logged in, look for the link with the "smiley face" right at the bottom of your screen.
Not being able to see the smiley face would mean that your host has set up your Cpanel account with a theme ,such as Blue Lagoon,which does not provide a link to Fantastico. In that case,you better ask your host to change it so that you will abe able to access Fantastico.
Step 3: Go to Content Management, and then select Joomla.
Step 4: On the page that opens, select New Installation. This will take you to a page where you will need to fill in some information on where you want your Joomla installed.
Step 5: If you want to have it installed in the main domain directory, leave the "Install in Directory" field blank otherwise give it a directory name of your choice.
Step 6: Next, type in a username and password you prefer to use to access the Joomla Admin panel. Note down whatever you choose
Step 7: Then fill in your site email address, the Administrator name, and your site name.
Step 8: Now click on "Install Joomla". On clicking it simple instructions will appear on the screen and all you do is follow these instructions.
Step 9:Finally, you will get to theInstallation Successful page,where you will get the link to log in to the joomla admin page. Use the username and password that you have chosen to login to the admin.
That's it. Your have successfully installed joomla on your site!
