On the other hand you can install Joomla manually. This method is preferred by advanced users who want to follow closely the installation process and make any customizations right away.If you feel comfortable withFTP, and have basic understanding of file permissions, databases and web technologies as a whole, you caninstall Joomla manually.
Once you have filled in the form, please proceed by clicking on the "I nstall Joomla" button. You will be asked to confirm the installation on the next page. Finally, you get a page that informs you of a successful installation. You should bookmark the address of the administrator panel (yourdomain.com/administrator), and note your login credentials.
If you should experience problems with the installation of your Joomla website, do not hesitate to contact your SiteGround support team. With youSiteGround Hosting account you get Free and Professional Joomla Installation, and within minutes you will have a fully functional and running Joomla website.
The downloaded archive should be extracted locally on your computer. Once this is completed, the files should be uploaded to your web hosting account. In order to do so you can use an FTP client. For detailed information on that matter please check ourFTP tutorial.
Please note that if you would like the Joomla installation performed for your domain name thus making it accessible at http://www.your-domain.com, the installation files should be uploaded directly under the public_html folder for your account. If you would like the installation perfromed in a sub-folder or for a sub-domain name the files should be uploaded in the corresponding directory located under the public_html folder.For example if you would like the installation performed for: http://www.your- domain.com/joomla, the installation files should be uploaded under public_html/joomla.
In this step the Joomla installer checks the server configuration and verifies all the settings needed for the installation. Generally on all Joomla-optimized servers all the checks should be passed without any troubles and the status will be marked in green.
If any custom settings are enabled for your account this might interfere with the Joomla installation. In such case the pre-installation check will notify you exactly which requirement is not met, the status will be marked in red and if available more information will be displayed. If so the issue must be resolved and the check run again.
