I never found a step by step video tutorial on how to install Joomla, a popular content management system (CMS). I design web pages, but I am not savvy when it comes to coding, servers and the like. So in this tutorial I step you through how to install Joomla. I show how to do a local installation on a Mac computer using MAMP, a free utility you can download from their site. The steps I show are nearly identical for those hosting their websites on webservers. Just be sure to have access to a CPanel or a way to create a database, and add users to it. You will need the username and password, so keep them handy.

Look for more info at my website.

    Thanks for the videos - I've viewed two over the past few weeks - one for setting up virtual hosts, and one for integrating Coldfusion with MAMP PRO. I'm looking forward to one on virtual hosts and Coldfusion. Thanks for the help.

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
