This tutorial is the first series from Joomla Tutorial Series I have plan to write. This joomla tutorial translate are slightly different from the bahasa  Indonesia, because my English not good at all.

The joomla we use here is new joomla stable version, version 1.5.x. The litle x mean the minor release of current joomla. Today, when I write this tutorial, the minor release is Joomla 1.5.2.

What is Joomla?

As far as I know:

Joomla! is a free open source framework and content publishing system designed for quickly creating highly interactive multi-language Web sites, online communities, media portals, blogs and eCommerce applications.

Joomla! provides an easy-to-use graphical user interface that simplifies the management and publishing of large volumes of content including HTML, documents, and rich media. Joomla! is used by organisations of all sizes for Public Web sites, Intranets, and Extranets and is supported by a community of thousands of users.

So, joomla is smart cms we use for everything, its up to you what you use joomla for.Although joomla is multi-purpose content publishing system for websites, joomla is not suitable enough to be comfortable blog engine. In this case, I prefer wordpress than joomla.

Joomla Pre-Installation

Before we use joomla, we need to install it first. Before installation we will need:

  1. Apache Web Server. Better if we have rewrite module for SEO, and others to improve joomla power.
  2. MySQL Database. MySQL is optimized database for joomla. You can use another databases, but we need extra work and setup for it. MySQl is the best.
  3. A copy of Joomla installer. Go get it here, if you dont ready have one.

If you have buy a commercial webserver, you can use fantastico tool through your cpanel, instead do manual install as we discuss here. If you do, then this tutorial dont give advantage too much for you.

The next, open your browser, my favorite is Firefox. Open your phpmyadmin page. if you use LAMPP like me, open it here: http://localhost/phpmyadmin/.Crete a new database by type it new name. For example, I use ltguide as new database name.

Installing Joomla

I have installing joomla in my local webserver. I extract the joomla installer in usermode.web.id directory. After extracting, please open your browser and go to http://localhost/usermode.web.id or wherever you extracting joomla before.

2466458332_ba18bf911fThe first step is to choose installation language to use. Please choose the suit language from the list.

2466458684_fcbf12cae7

Second step is to check your web server requirements that meet joomla. If you see the green color words written, that mean you pass for the requirements. Otherwise, red color mean the requirements must be corrected before we go to next step. For example, if your register globals on your php requirement is red (on), open your php.ini configuration file and toggle it to off.

Third step is to accept the joomla aggrement and license. If you dont agree, please close your browser and dont install joomla.

2466459136_e8ab935f2fFourth step is configure the database. Joomla will ask for database server address, username and password to use. In local webserver, I think its not difficult. The problems will appear if you enter unassigned or different username for database. So, make sure the database and the username, also password is match and assigned.

2465632835_ce4e64ec5dFifth step is configure ftp layer. This joomla feature important for maintain file and folder. You need it to let joomla configure the right permission for better security issues. If you want to do it manually, dont enable it and let it empty. Before go to next step, may you want to test the FTP connection setting, push the “Verify FTP Settings” button.

2465632997_81dac39b63Sixth step is configuring you website. Enter your website name, password and email addres to use and then if you are new to joomla, may you need to installing the sample data. The default sample data contain some informations and mini howto from joomla developer.

2465630385_1d0d7bb35aFinish!, congratulation! Now you have a fresh joomla powered website.

2465631271_7ddc7714b0

If you want to access your administration panel, you can acces it on http://localhost/instalasi_joomla/administrator.

After installation, is a good practice to change the configuration.php file permission in your root directory and to delete the installation folder.

phpbb1

The first thing you need to do is download phpBB from www.phpbb.com. It is always best to download from an official source so you know the file you are getting is safe. Be sure to download the full version of the software and not just the updates.

phpbb1

Now that you have download the file, you need to unzip and upload it. It should unzip to a folder called phpBB2, which contains many other files and subfolders.

You now need to connect to your website via FTP, and decide where you want your forum to reside. If you want the forum to be the first thing shown when you go to http://www.yoursite.com, then upload the contents of the phpBB2 folder (not the folder itself, just everything inside of it) to yoursite.com when you connect.

If you want your forum to be in a sub folder (for example http://www.yoursite.com/forum/) you must first create the folder (the folder would be called ‘forum’ in our example), and then upload the contents of the phpBB2 folder into the new folder on your server.

Be sure when you upload that you keep the structure intact. This means that all subfolders and files stay within the main or subfolders they currently are. Just select the whole group of files and folders, and transfer them all as-is.

Depending on your internet connection, this may take awhile… there are many files to upload.

phpbb3

Next you need to run the install file. You can do this by pointing your web browser to the install file. It can be found at http://www.yoursite.com/sub_folder/install/install.php If you did not put the forum into a subfolder then just go directly to http://www.yoursite.com/install/install.php

Here you will be asked a series of questions.

Database Server Hostname : usually leaving this as localhost works, but not always. If not, you can usually find this information from your hosting control panel, but if you don’t see it, contact your hosting company and they can tell you. If you get Critical Error: Could not connect to database – then localhost probably didn’t work.

Your Database Name: This is the name of the MySQL database you wish to store the phpBB information in. This must already exist.

Database Username: Your MySQL database login username

Database Password: Your MySQL database login password

Prefix for tables in database: Unless you are using a single database to hold more than one phpBB, you probably don’t have a reason to change this, so leave it as phpbb_

Admin Email Address: This is usually your e-mail address

Domain Name: Yoursite.com – it should pre-fill correctly

Server Port:: This is usually 80 – it should pre-fill correctly

Script path: This changes based upon if you put your forum in a subfolder or not – it should pre-fill correctly

The next three fields: Administrator Username, Administrator Password, and Administrator Password [ Confirm ] are used to setup the first account on the forum, the one you will login to to administer the forum, make posts, etc. These can be anything you want, but be sure you remember the values.

Once you submit this information, if all went well you will be taken to a screen with a button that says “Finish Installation” — Click the button.

phpbb5

Now when you go to you http://www.yoursite.com (or yoursite.com/forum, or wherever you choose to install your forum) you will see a message saying “Please ensure both the install/ and contrib/ directories are deleted”. You need to FTP into your site again, and find these folders. Just delete the entire folders, and all of their contents. Your forum should now be functional! To get started using it, login with the username & password that you created when you ran the install file. At the bottom of the page you should see a link that says “Go to Administration Panel”. This will let you preform Admin options such as adding new forums, changing the forum name, etc. Your account also let’s you post just like a normal user.

It’s just an amazing picture that i took from website http://regex.info/blog/. These sakura trees were planted beside  Biwako Canal (Biwako Sosui). Biwako Canal is a waterway in Japan built during the Meiji Period to transport water, freight, and passengers from Lake Biwa to the nearby City of Kyoto. This waterway was also used as Japan’s first hydroelectric power generator, which served to provide electricity for Kyoto’s trams. And in every spring, when sakura trees are blossom, there is an awesome scenery, combining modern lighting and the beautiful sakura.
