This tutorial is a step-by-step guide that will show you how to install a Template Demo (Point. Click. GO!) Installation Package.
The Point. Click. GO! package consists of a full Joomla install (latest stable version at time of creation), complete with all of the demo images, content, and extensions. By running the installer, your Joomla site will be set up with everything needed to create an exact implementation of the demo site automatically.
Please Note: We are referencing the cPanel brand control panel in this tutorial. It is one of the most popular, but cPanel is one of several control panels. If you don't use cPanel, don't worry. Most control panels have these same tools, but they may be located in different areas.
01.Download a Point. Click. GO! file from your account area or the downnloads area (Club Members)
02.Upload this file to your webserver using you cPanel File mananger.
03.Extract the file in the directory where you want your site. root is most often the public_html directory of your webserver. If you want it in a subfolder, then it might be: public_html/joomla
Now the files are ready for installation.
04.Create a database and user for this installation using your database tools (like phpMyAdmin) in your hosting control panel. In the below screenshots, we first create our joomla database for our website, then we create a new user for the database. Finally, you need to add the new user to the new database you just created, giving the user the proper permissions you wish to grant.
05.Now just open your webserver's url ( eg: website.com ) in your browser address bar and you should see the first Joomla installation screen. Follow the Joomla installation instructions to complete your installation. HINT: On the database and username screen, the info is usually prefixed by your hosting username. See screenshot above: ie. pixelpoi_joomla
On the last installation step don't forget to press the Install Sample Data button. We use the "Default" Sample Data for our packages. If you do not press this button, none of the demo's content will be loaded. You will have a default Joomla installation with no content.
