How to install Joomla????

  • Hello All,
    '
    Thanks for taking a look and maybe you can help me. I as so many others are just getting into OMV. I have played around with Amahi and even bought a Zyxel320s to play around with for a bit. I am looking to move on and take off the training wheels and try to make something that is mine from....well...not the ground up but you get the idea.


    So what I need is a step by step direction on how to install Joomla (not stuck on just Joomla so if you have a better suggestion...I am all ears) and everything that I need to install to run a minor website and to even get Joomla to work at all.


    Looking forward to the responses and maybe as time goes I will be skilled enough to help other people out too. God Bless open source.

  • Ok, so I finally got to test this(dang kids and family life). All seems to have gone well and I didnt really run into an issue until.....step 35


    • tar xvzf latest.tar.gz --strip-components=1

    After I realized strip-componets=1 should be strip -componets I recieved this error


    tar: -componets=1: Invalid number of elements.


    Any ideas?

  • You have some spelling mistakes. componets should components. Type exactly what I wrote. Do not split the strip-components flag.

  • So I am just going to throw this out there....definitely user error on my part...my bad .lol. Word press is now up and running now I just need to figure out how to use it since I was reading everything under the sun about Joomla. (Forgot to mention I figured I would try out Wordpress for now). Thats another thread, in another forum for another day though.


    Thanks again!!!
