Installation

1. Quickstart Installation

Choosing quickstart package to install helps you quickly create an entire Joomla site which includes Joomla! CSM, JV Hosting template, JV and third party extensions, sample articles, default Joomla! modules.

After finishing this quickstart installation, you only need to edit or add text, logo, product images and information, menu, new articles... in the back-end.

To install quickstart package, take the followings steps:

✔ STEP 1: EXTRACT QUICKSTART PACKAGE:

The first step you need to do is locate the quickstart package zip file and extract extract it to a folder, which contains all necessary files for installation.

✔ STEP 2: UPLOAD FOLDER TO YOUR SEVER:

- If you install Jv Hosting on your localhost for testing or development: just copy the folder to …\xampp\htdocs (If you are using XAMPP) or….\wamp\www (If you are using WAMP)

- If you install JV hosting on your actual server:

You can upload files via FTP using a client application like Filezilla or via cPanel -> File Manager -> Upload file(s).

If you want your Joomla! to be the main installation on your account and to be accessed through your main domain (i.e. www.yourdomain.com), you need to upload the extracted files to your public_html folder. (Though some host severs have a different structure, in most cases, the root folder is "public_html."). However, you can always create a sub-folder (i.e. public_html/jv-hosting) if you want to run installation through www.yourdomain.com/jv-hosting

up load files via ftp

 

✔ STEP 3: CREATE DATABSE FOR YOUR JOOMLA SITE

Now, you need to create a Database name and a user account (username and password) to it with full permissions to control database. Once you created your Database and User, make sure you remember the database name, database username and password you've just created, because they will be used in installation process.

While you are uploading the files to your server, it is time to create your MySQL database. The database is where your Joomla! files and images for your site are stored. You need to login to your hosting account cPanel to create your database. Normally you would use phpMyAdmin to create the database. Be sure to save your information from your database because you will need it when you install Joomla!

✔ STEP 4: RUN INSTALLATION

Now it's time to start with the installation process. If you have uploaded installation files in your root directory you just need to go to http://yourdomain.com or subdomain (i.e http://yourdomain.com/jv-hosting) in your browser and get started.

You will see the first screen where you enter necessary information:

configuration

- Site Name: Enter the your site's name. This for the first heading of your index.

- Description: Enter a short description of your website.

- Admin Email: Enter a valid email address for system messages and password recovery.

- Admin Username: Enter admin username.

- Admin Password: Enter a password.

- Site Offline: Select whether your site should be taken offline after the installation process is completed.

 

Click "Next" to continue the installation process.

The next screen you will see is about Database Configuration:

- Database Type: By default this value is set to MySQLi, but you can select MySQL

- Host Name: Leave the default localhost value.

- Username: Enter the database username, which you created in step 3.

- Password: Enter the password for the database username, which you created in step 3.

- Database Name: Enter the database name, which you created in step 3.

- Table Prefix: This is used to add to all of database tables. If you want to host many Joomla sites on a single database. You should leave the default value.

- Old Database Process: If you have any existing databases. You can select "remove" or "backup" any existing data. You should leave this option "Backup" since it is the safest choice

database configuration

Click "Next" to proceed installation.

The next screen you will see is "Overview". In the first part, you can specify if you want install sample data on your server. We recommend you to choose the Default Sample data option, which helps build your actual website cloning Hosting Demo.The second part of the page will show you all pre-installation checks.

overview

Click "Install" to start the real Joomla installation.

In the next screen, you will see Joomla Web Installer is installing....

On the last screen of the installation process you need to press Remove installation folder button or you can rename the installation folder. Note that you can't use your site unless you remove this folder completely!
