Hi all,

I'm totally new to this, but I've tried my hands once on Joomla to create a website.
I would really like to create a new website using Joomla and have it host in frihost.

How do I do that? I remember I had to "install" Joomla in the previous host via Softaculous.

Appreciate the assist and sorry about my illiteracy.

Basically
upload joomla archive to desired path(where you want to install) most probably your website root directory,

extract files,

in a browser simply enter the address of your website

follow the steps of installation

-------------------------------------------

if you have any questions, here's official installation guide

and remember Google is your friend Wink

Here you won't get auto installer script. just use FTP client to upload extracted joomla files and folders to your public_html directory or directory you wish inside public_html folder. you can get installation instruction in joomla site.

To upload your website or extracted joomla content to frihost, you can use ftp file manager, for example filezilla: http://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client

Code:

You can also use this for joomla 2.5.1

Joomla's manual help is the best way to creating site easier, or you can find lot of answers from joomla's forum http://forum.joomla.org/

You can also use File Manager in your DirectAdmin control panel.

1. Login to DirectAdmin
2. Click on File Manager
3. If you only have a subdomain then select public_html from the list
4. Scroll down and click on the button 'Upload files to current directory'
5. Select Joomla_x.x.x-Stable-Full_Package.zip from your pc
6. Click on the button 'Upload Files' (Have patience... this may take some time)
7. Go back to your public_html folder (there will be a link to go back to your public_html folder)
8. Behind the filename in the fourth column you see the link 'Extract'. Click on this link.
9. Finally, click on the button 'Extract' to unzip Joomla in the public_html folder.

After these steps, you can start with the installation of joomla. Do not forget to create a database for joomla first before you begin installation. If necessary, rename the file htaccess.txt to .htaccess

It was just there in front but overlooked and could not figure out for half an hour, Thank you for detail steps.

I'm not a new joomla user, but I never before went through a process of building the website from the scratch. Thanks for useful information.

Upload the joomla files - extract it using ur file manager - then goto www.yoursite.com/installation/
then follow the instructions Smile
johans
there are other options in installing joomla.. you can install first to your localhost then transfer to remote host Or if your hosting services have 1 click installation then that much easier to do.

"Getting Started" section at docs.joomla.org gives you an easy to use step by step guide for various installation variants as per your peculiar requirements.

https://www.akeebabackup.com/ is a good choice for backing up and moving your site around.

My biggest stumbling block when I first started using Joomla can be summed up as follows
"Menus ain't menus"

In an older environment a menu simply points to an existing page.
In Joomla the menu item you build determines the type of page and what it will display.

Another thing they don't tell you is that some extensions become menu choices rather than a plugin, module, or component.

akeeba is my favorite backup.

What do you mean menus not a menus? - i am confused on your post. can you explain more?

you can simply determine when you installed the extension. If it is plugin it will say plug-in successfully installed. if it is module it will give a message module successfully installed or if it is component it will shows component successfully installed. can you explain where is the confusing part?

Yes Akeeba is a great option if you have already got a Joomla site built and want to transfer it to a new site. It is also a great option even if it is the first time you are installing Joomla. Google Akeeba backup and you will find detailed instructions on their website on how to restore Joomla to a new site. Hope this helps.

If you want to learn how to use Joomla! There are many sources available on the web.

A good starting point would be http://docs.joomla.org/.

Beside this, on the web you can find several videos on this subject.

But even if you read and watch all the sources you may not fully solve all your problems.

Forums like this sometimes will be more helpful for your special situation. Smile

Best regards.
