Installation Guide for Joomla

So you've just ordered your hosting account and you are looking to install Joomla - good you're in the right place. We make this easy with our build in 'application installer'. 

Step 1:
Login to your cPanel account - the details for this will be in the welcome email. 

Step 2: 
Search for "Softaculous App Installer" - this will then load up the application installer suite. 

Step 3: 
Under the 'Top Scripts' section - choose "Joomla".

Step 4:
This will load an installation screen and give you a few options to configure how you want your site to be set up. 

By default, it will install to the /joomla folder - so you would access it at http://domain.tld/joomla/ - for most users, this isn't what they will want. 

To change this, you need to modify the 'In Directory' setting. 

Once you are happy with the settings on this page, press 'Continue' and this will install Joomla for you. 

Step 5: 
Once you have installed Joomla, we would recommend securing it further using the "Security Checklist" from Joomla's website which is found here: https://docs.joomla.org/Security_Checklist 

If you require any assistance with the install, or securing your installation of Joomla, please contact our support team who can take care of this for you. Please raise a ticket here: https://www.zfast.co.uk/support
