2. Installation: Getting Joomla Up and Running

Chapter 2. Installation: Getting Joomla Up and Running

Joomla isn't just any ordinary software package that you can install on your own computer; it needs a web server to run on. If you are new to Joomla, installing a web application may seem daunting. And, let's be honest, running the installation procedure is probably the least exciting part of working with Joomla. However, if you just follow the required steps, it's pretty straightforward. It does take a little preparation, but if you have got everything ready, you can walk through Joomla's user-friendly setup wizard that takes most of the hassle out of the installation.

In this chapter, you will install Joomla on a web server, allowing you or anyone else with Internet access to immediately see and visit your Joomla-powered site. Your site will be accessible via your own web address (URL), such as http://www.example.com. When you build and customize the site, you will access the site through your browser.
