8- Ready to install Joomla? * See minimum requirements here: http://www.joomla.org/technical-requirements.html * How do you install Joomla! ? - http://docs.joomla.org/Installing_Joomla!_1.7 * Start your Joomla experience building your site with a local test server. When ready it can be moved to an on-line hosting account of your choice. See the tutorial: http://docs.joomla.org/Tutorial:Joomla_Local_installDo point your browser at 'http://www.yoursite.com/installation' as suggested by the installation guide. Move on to page you, you will come across a page titled 'Pre-Installation Check'. That page has this gem:
|PHP Version >= 5.2.4||Yes|
|Zlib Compression Support||Yes|
|Database Support: (mysql, mysqli)||Yes|
|INI Parser Support||Yes|
|configuration.php Writeable||No You can still continue the installation as the configuration settings will be displayed at the end. You will have to manually upload the code. Click in the text area to highlight all of the code and then paste into a new text file. Name this file 'configuration.php' and upload it to your site root folder.|
With that done, Joomla! is now installed! The last step needed is to remove the installation directory - and the Joomla! installer does this for you as well! This needs removed for security reasons, to prevent anyone else from coming along and installing Joomla! again over your existing site. To do this, simple click the "Remove Installation Directory" button.Assuming that you manage to ssh and delete those files? what you do do next? Point your browser at the installation home page? You do that and you will get nothing more than a blank page.
