Hi, I am John from JoomlArt. Welcome to our Joomla video tutorials series. Today we’ll talk about how to install Joomla.

First, download latest Joomla package. Access, go to download page then select package to download.

Paste the package to your server and extract it. Once the extraction is done, access your localhost and add path to the extracted folder. Great, in the Joomla installation wizard, select language to install, add site name and then add the admin account information: admin email address, and the admin username and password. You can also decide whether to set the site to offline mode. When you are done, hit Next to go to database configuration.

Here we first select database type: MySQL or MySQLi, add the hostname, database user, database username, password, database name and table prefix. There are 2 options if you are using an old database - you can back it up or remove it all together.

Let’s go to the overview step. Select the sample data from the ones available, and then decide whether to send the configuration settings to the admin email address for future reference, Finally check the pre-installation and recommended settings to make sure you’re good to go, and then hit the “Install” button to proceed.

If you don’t want to configure your site to be multilingual, then the installation process for you is over. Just rename or remove the installation folder. If you want to configure multilingual, hit the “Extra steps: install languages” button. Select one or more languages you want to install. Ok, the language installation is now done, and you can decide whether to activate the multilingual site now or not. When you enable this option, you should enable the other options. Scroll down to select default language for administrator and front-side of your site. Hit the Next button.

So far, everything is great, we’re almost done, All we need to do is remove or rename the installation folder. The Installation folder is now removed, let’s check your front-page. Here is a multilingual Joomla 3 site front-page, switch languages, it works properly. Now access your back-end panel. It’s your time to explore.
