How to install a Joomla Quickstart Package

Written by  Manager

1. INTRODUCTION


A quickstart is basically a fully functional and entire Joomla! package containing the CMS itself, the all used modules, plugins and templates.

The whole process of installation is very easy and may be treated as a normal installation of the Joomla! (2.5/3.x) environment, but with all the extensions and their settings

Here is the tutorial that will direct you to step by step installation process of a quickstart package.

 

2. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR JOOMLA! 3.X


Before we start the installation you should check if the server that hosts your account meets all the Joomla! system requirements, Check the minimum system requirements below:
  • PHP 5.3.1 or higher – 5.4+ is recommended;
  • MySQL 5.1 (or higher) or PostgreSQL 8.3.x
  • Apache 2. x or higher
  • XML and Zlib support: Your host’s PHP installation should support XML and Zlib functionality.

If this setting currently isn’t okay, your web host should be able to correct this.


3. PREPARE YOUR DATABASE

Before we can go to the next step, you will need to create a MySQL database, username and password for your application that will be used for the installation of your new Joomla! website. The Joomla! installation requires the database to be created using the utf-8 character set.

Every web hosting service offers the option of adding a new database. In order to create a MySQL database on your hosting account, you need to log in the Customer Area ->My Accounts section – for further information, please check the tutorials on the hosts’ page. Once the database is created, assign a user account to this new database with full permissions control over this database.


4. INSTALLING THE QUICKSTART IN JUST A FEW STEPS


Open your preferred browser and navigate to the address (for example, http://www.mysite.com) or directory on your server where you will perform the installation. The installation screen will come up:

On the first page, select the language you want to use during the installation should you need to change the default settings. On this page you have to configure the website name, administrator e-mail, Admin username and password. Administrator data will be necessary to access the administration panel. Please do not use “admin” as a default username – it’s not safe.

Click on the Next button. You’ll be taken to the Database Configuration screen:
step2 qs
Select the type of database from the drop-down list; currently, most web hosts support MySQLi (MySQL Improved), which allows for faster and more secure communication with the database, so we recommend using it if possible. Then enter the hostname of the database server. The default value is “localhost”, so check with your hosting provider if you are not sure. Enter the MySQL username, password and database name that you previously created on your host control panel. You can leave the “Table prefix” field unchanged.

Once the Database Configuration screen is complete, click the Next button. The Joomla! installer will now check if it can connect to the database. If you see an error message, you’ve probably made a typo when entering the database details or you forgot to create a new database, so please double-check these details.

At the bottom of this page you will find information about your system and if it meets the minimum requirements for Joomla! installation. If you find any setting marked red, take the appropriate action to correct these errors, or else the Joomla! installation may not function properly.

Press the next button to install the demo content and complete the installation.

Congratulations! The installation has successfully completed. However, before you enjoy your new website, you have to delete the “installation” folder. Before removing the installation folder you may install additional languages for both the Joomla! front-end and the back-end. If you want to add extra languages to your Joomla! application click the Install languages button.
