This tutorial is the first series from Joomla Tutorial Series I have plan to write. This joomla

tutorial translate are slightly different from the indonesian, because my English not good at all.


The joomla we use here is new joomla stable version, version 1.5.x. The litle x mean the minor
release of current joomla. Today, when I write this tutorial
, the minor release is Joomla 1.5.2.


What is Joomla?


As far as I know:


Joomla! is a free open source framework and content publishing system designed for quickly
creating highly interactive multi
-
language Web sites, online communities, media portals, bl
ogs
and eCommerce applications.


Joomla! provides an easy
-
to
-
use graphical user interface that simplifies the management and
publishing of large volumes of content including HTML, documents, and rich media. Joomla! is
used by organisations of all sizes for

Public Web sites, Intranets, and Extranets and is supported
by a community of thousands of users.


So, joomla is smart cms we use for everything, its up to you what you use joomla for.Although
joomla is multi
-
purpose content publishing system for websites
, joomla is not suitable enough to
be comfortable blog engine. In this case, I prefer wordpress than joomla.

Installation


Before we use joomla, we need to install it first. Before installation we will need:


1. Apache Web Server. Better if we
have rewrite module for SEO, and others to improve joomla
power.

2. MySQL Database. MySQL is optimized database for joomla. You can use another databases,
but we need extra work and setup for it. MySQl is the best.

3. A copy of Joomla installer. Go get it
here, if you dont ready have one.


If you have buy a commercial webserver, you can use fantastico tool through your cpanel,
instead do manual install as we discuss here. If you do, then this tutorial dont give advantage too
much for you.


The next, open yo
ur browser, my favorite is Firefox. Open your phpmyadmin page. if you use
LAMPP like me, open it here: http://localhost/phpmyadmin/.Crete a new database by type it new
name. For example, I use ltguide as new database name.

Installing Joomla


I have installing joomla in my local webserver. I extract the joomla installer in usermode.web.id
directory. After extracting, please open your browser and go to http://
localhost/usermode.web.id
or wherever you extracting joomla before.


choose your language for joola installation


The first step is to choose installation language to use. Please choose the suit language from the
list.


check your server whether it meet jo
omla requirement


Second step is to check your web server requirements that meet joomla. If you see the green
color words written, that mean you pass for the requirements. Otherwise, red color mean the
requirements must be corrected before we go to next st
ep. For example, if your register globals
on your php requirement is red (on), open your php.ini configuration file and toggle it to off.


Third step is to accept the joomla aggrement and license. If you dont agree, please close your
browser and dont insta
ll joomla.


configuring database using joomla


Fourth step is configure the database. Joomla will ask for database server address, username and
password to use. In local webserver, I think its not difficult. The problems will appear if you
enter unassigned

or different username for database. So, make sure the database and the
username, also password is match and assigned.


configuring ftp layer using joomla


Fifth step is configure ftp layer. This joomla feature important for maintain file and folder. You
n
eed it to let joomla configure the right permission for better security issues. If you want to do it
manually, dont enable it and let it empty. Before go to next step, may you want to test the FTP
connection setting, push the “Verify FTP Settings” button.


configuring your website use joomla


Sixth step is configuring you website. Enter your website name, password and email addres to
use and then if you are new to joomla, may you need to installing the sample data. The default
sample data contain some infor
mations and mini howto from joomla developer.


configuring your website use joomla


Finish!, congratulation! Now you have a fresh joomla powered website.


fresh joomla installation homepage


If you want to access your administration panel, you can acces it

on
http://localhost/instalasi_joomla/administrator.

After installation, is a good practice to change the configuration.php file permission in your root
directory and to delete the installation folder.


OK, this is the end of fi
rst series of Joomla Tutorial Series. The next series, we will discuss about
how to create menu, content, and managing modules.
