Default Joomla 1.5 manually

To install Joomla 1.5 manually follow the steps below:
Step 1. Create a MySQL database and add a new user to it. This can be done easily with cPanel by following the MySQL database tutorial.

In case you are not using cPanel you can refer to the MySQL manual on creating databases and adding users to it.

Step 2. Create a folder called upload on your computer.

Step 3. Go to the Joomla download page. Download the .zip file with the latest version to the upload folder and extract it there.

Step 4. Upload all the content from upload to the directory on the server where Joomla 1.5 will be installed. SiteGround recommends using FTP for this purpose and the FTP tutorial will guide you through the necessary steps.

Step 5. Open the URL of the newly uploaded Joomla files. This will be either http://your_domain_name.com or a subdirectory such as http://your_domain_name.com/example.

Step 6. You will be redirected to the Joomla installation page:
On the first page of the installation you will be able to choose the Language for the installation.

Important The selected language will be valid only for the installation process. Once installed Joomla will be back in English.

We recommend selecting "English" in order to follow easier the next steps from the tutorial.

Step 7. Joomla will perform a pre-installation check of the system environment. Failing to meet a requirement or recommendation may cause functional and security problems later.
Step 8. Once you make sure all requirements are met, click on the [Next] button from the top right menu.

Step 9. Next you will have to accept Joomla's license and click on [Next] to continue.

Step 10. The following page will ask about the MySQL details for the new Joomla 1.5 installation.

Here are some example entries and explanations for these fields in case you have difficulties understanding exactly what information you should enter:
In our example we will not use the option Install Sample Data because it may cause confusion and require time to remove all the data populated later.

Step 13. In the last page of the installation wizard you will receive a confirmation that Joomla has been successfully installed.

Before being able to access your new Joomla 1.5 you must delete the installation directory. For this purpose use FTP as described in Step 3.

Well done! Your Joomla website is now installed.
Thanks & regards
