This post features two video tutorials in response to Episode 29 of the Joomla Beat Podcast. These are also lessons from our upcoming course called Build a Joomla Website from Scratch. This series will be part of our Beyond the Basics series. In this first tutorial, I demonstrate how to install Joomla using Softaculous - a script installer included in many hosting accounts.
If your host doesn't include Softaculous (or other quick install option) you can still skip some steps by using the control panel's File Manager feature. This tutorial demonstrates how to do this using cPanel. Note that this only gets the Joomla files onto your hosting account. You still need to create a database and run through the web installer.
Do you have any installation tips? If so, please share below.
