 How to install a Joomla template

Joomla 1.5 installs with three pre-installed templates. These templates are good as a starting point when learning Joomla. Still, if you want to create a Joomla website, you will want to look at other templates as well.
There are a lot of templates out there. Both free and commercial. I usually recommend spending a few dollars on a template from a professional provider if you're creating a business website. You will get those dollars back in less frustrations, better search engine rankings and easier customization. The support is also better (not always, though).
This tutorial will show you how to install a Joomla template and how to get started 
 customizing it.

Downloading the Joomla template

Joomla templates are provided as ZIP files.
Download the file from the provider, but don't unzip the file before installing.

Installing the Joomla template

To install the Joomla template, follow this procedure:
1. Log in to your Joomla administrator
2. Click the top menu link 'Extensions' -> 'Install/uninstall'
3. Under 'Upload Package File', click 'Browse' to choose the zip file you downloaded from the template provider
4. Click 'Upload File & Install'. The template will now be installed.
5. Click 'Extensions' -> 'Template Manager'
6. To set the uploaded template to be the default template for the site, click the radio button to the left of the template name.
7. Click the 'Default' button in the top right corner of the page.
The template is now used as default on all pages on the site. You can now start customizing the template.

Customizing a Joomla template

I won't go into details about how to customize a template in this post. However, you can edit both the HTML of the template itself, and the CSS (stylesheets) used by the template
To access the customization options of a Joomla template, click the name of the template in the list.
You are now presented with the options available for the particular template. There will be different options for each template, as this is something the template developer may include himself.
Some templates have just a few options, while others will present a lot of alternatives. This is oftentimes the difference between a free and a professionally developed template. Most commercial templates have a number of settings to control the width of the template and columns, how the modules are presented, different styles and a lot more.
To see the code for the template and CSS, use the buttons:
I will look more into the mysteries of Joomla templates in another post.

Installing Joomla! CMS (step by step tutorial)

To install and run your first Joomla! Page You do not need some knowledge, but is still expected of you already know some basic concepts of web-dictionaries. Installation process is explained in several steps: 1st To install Joomla! CMS, you need a server that supports MySQL and PHP applications. I recommend that if you are at all able to obtain the hosting is not free because it is much more reliable and easier to work. From experience I suggest this because I know that free web hosting can demoralisati-beginners and even lead to its abandonment of web development. Free hosting servers are often (but not necessarily) unreliable, slow, problematic, but still can be used for learning ... decide for yourself. If however you choose paid hosting I recommend hosting on a Linux system with Apache server. 2nd Once you have solved the issue of hosting more than File Manager in the hosting control panel or via an FTP program (eg Filezilla) switch to Joomla! files on the server. If you switch from FTP application process will be somewhat slower. You otpakovati files on your computer and upload them via FTP programs or upload zipovani Joomla! file through File Manager or FTP program, so it otpakovati on the server (this option is not dostuna in all control panels on web hosting - means depends on the type of hosting control panel you use). 3rd After you upload Joomla! files that are now otpakovani on your web hosting needs first and foremost to create a MySQL database. To do the hosting control panel with the hosting tool that is used to manipulate MySQL databases. Create a new database under a specific name (eg baza_1). After that, create a user database (user database) which will grant all privileges to specific database management (creating a database varies from host to host, but mainly boils down to making the base allocation and the user base). Username pasword user base and select yourself and remember it will be necessary later. 4th See the folder that contains files of your Joomla! sites that we have uploadovali the server. This folder access via web brovsera by ukucate www.vaš After that will appear in Home Joomla! installation that looks like this: 
Domov Home Joomla! Installation To properly install Joomla!

Chmod translated into layperson's language means setting permissions for specific files, or specify the manner in which you can access a specific file but all you need to know about it is that all folders that are written in red letters above the displayed image should be chmod - Irani on the value of 777 which will do special checking each folder and clicking on the chmod option in the menu options and set the value of 777 or (depending on the control panel) to assign all responsibility for all three groups korsnika this file (read-write-execute) by checking the tick .

You can then click on the NEXT button on the next page will appear the license under which Joomla! CMS released (GNU GPL license). After reading the license, click NEXT again in the upper right corner (if you agree with the license, of course) to access the next step of installation. 6th Now is the page where you need to enter the database name that you previously created (in our case baza_1) and enter the username and password user database that you created earlier also. The first field should be the name mysql host is Localhost most, if not so then you are probably in the mail in which you activate the hosting indicated MySQL host name that you enter in this field. The last field is the prefix specified database (jos_) which should change ... or the other, below the indicated options.

The URL field and the PATH is usually not necessary to touch because it is automatically generated and filled. 9th Once you have correctly completed the eighth step, the last page of the installation appears you your user name (default username is "admin") and your password that you selected, or if you have not changed, automatically generated pasword. And remember information because you will be required to access the admin panel after installation.
