Installing Joomla 2.5 is just as easy as installing Joomla 1.7 with the simple installation instructions provided in your browser with the Joomla 2.5 package. Whilst we are the Joomla Experts and may find these things to be a walk in the park, following these simple steps will allow you to install Joomla 2.5 with ease.
Here is what you will need to complete your installation:
- A Joomla Web Hosting environment which is compatible with Joomla 2.5
- A MySQL database
- A MySQL database user assigned to your database
- A MySQL database user password (make sure you record this!)
- An up to date Joomla 2.5 download
Once you have all of these elements in place you will need to upload your Zip file of Joomla 2.5 to your server using either FTP or Cpanel.
Unzip the package and visit your installation through your web browser. You will be presented with a series of simple instructions to complete, do so ensuring that you enter the appropriate database details. Once you are finished you will have a brand new Joomla 2.5 Installation to play with!!
