Install Joomla!

Joomla!® is a personal publishing platform, or content management system, that you can use to set up a website.

This process does not work for free hosting accounts and secondary or aliased domain names on Windows® hosting accounts. You must manually install Joomla! with these types of hosting accounts.

  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. Click Popular Apps.
  5. In the search field, type joomla, and then click Search.
  6. Click the version of Joomla! you want to install.
  7. Click Install Now.

    NOTE: The Install Now button displays only when the selected application is compatible with one or more hosting plans in your account.

  8. Select the domain name you want to use.
  9. Enter a database description and password, and then click Next.
  10. Choose an installation directory, and then click Next.

    To install Joomla in your root directory, leave this field empty.
