    Joomla - beginning!

    Just downloaded Joomla from their website - I've loads of folders like administrator, cache, componetns, editior etc. Whats the next step?

    I have a webserver to try it out on.

    I've no experience with it, am just interested in trying it out as quite a few people use it on here.

    Take a look at the install guide:

    Have you read the joomla 1.5 pdf that is in the zip file?

    Or looked at the install guide on the demo site?

    Upload the contents of you the zip file ( all those folders and files) to the root of your webserver and then goto your website and the install script will run.

    I'd recommend taking a gander at some of the hard copy books on Joomla 1.5 as well.

    Some of the concepts are quite hard to track down and taken as read in many cases which can make it particularly hard to work out what's happening. In particular watch out for the way the menu system works... It's a completely new way of looking at site organisation and controls a lot more than you'd normally "assume".

    Best of luck with it

    Ok thanks for the help - got Joomla installed on my webserver and inputted all the details. It appears on my site with all the sample text.......


    How can I start adding my own stuff, I realise I can login to change the latest info.

    Am I going to have to edit the php? If so what I should I use?

    Sorry for the silly questions, but as you can guess i am a NOOB!
