Joomla Support

I've been trying to install Joomla on my domain with no success whatsoever =( I've looked through a couple of the threads here, but I couldn't find a detailed tutorial on how to install it. The most I came up with was that I need the tar.gz files instead of the .zip files. If anyone could please tell me how to install it, or link me to a previous thread that explains it pretty well, I would greatly appreciate it!! Or if you want to install it for me that would be nice too =]]] Thanks again!

Installing joomla is a breeze.

Just upload the tar.gz with the file manager and then unzip it.

Go to the web address where the installation is and go through the web based installation.

It should take about 10 minuets and your up and running.

If you need me to install it for you let me know.

So you upload it to the public_html directory first before unzipping it? o_o I'm so confused lol.
I've installed Joomla before on several other different hosting websites and they've worked perfectly fine, but for some reason the Frihost one refuses to work with me. It gets to the install page but the page looks like a bunch of html codes, it doesn't look like how the installation page is supposed to look like as with all the other websites I've tried. It's making me frustrated =(

Would you mind doing it for me if I messaged you with my information? I don't know why it's not working for me on frihost, and I would like to see how it's done. I would appreciate it a loooot Very Happy Thank you so much!!

You need to upload it to your public_html directory, or a directory inside it. Afterwards unzip it with the file manager in DirectAdmin. However, to start/install it, you need to go to the website url and not use the one from the site manager. So it should be something like http://piki.frih.net/<something>
