Installation of edugeek
i have been trying to install the edugeek application into my hosting account for some weeks with no luck. other associated templates from 'siteground's joomla hosting have been easy but this application is a complete folder which will need to replace the current public_html folder within our ftp setup? the installation of any app. or template not within siteground.com requires a fee, but im sure its relatively easy to do myself?! (ive certinaly been finding it difficult to replace the correct files so far, and when i just upload the edugeek file in place of what is already there, it wont display to let me configure) - my client and i want the edugeek template and i havent found any suitable alternatives. as a last resort, i will pay the $50+ per hour fee for siteground.com to install it, but id like to know first how to do it. please help. thanks.
If you're having trouble installing Joomla then I am quite happy to install it for you for free. I certainly wouldn't pay $50. If you would prefer to do it yourself then I'm sure somebody else here will be able to advise you further or I will later on when I return.
I take it you have php support and an SQL database with your hosting? If so unzip the package locally and upload via FTP the contents of the site folder to the root of your public_html folder. Make sure there is no index.htm / index.html in the root of the public_html folder.
Now when you browse to your site you should see the Joomla install page.
thanks so much for your help everyone. ive got it sorted now after weeks of pulling my hair out! seriously, i cant believe how nice ppl are on this forum!!
What was you doing wrong?
