PART 2 -
Now we have a ready LAMP Server to install CMS like Joomla on it.
Installation process for most of the Content Management Systems is same.
Joomla is a rich featured and award winning CMS.





Step 1.
Visit Joomla.org
Download Joomla





Step 2.
Open Your document root.

Extract the Joomla archive in your document root.

[Make sure you have nautilus and file-roller running with root privileges]






Step 3. Now Click Open Site / Or manually access your domain from browser.

Your Joomla Web Installer should start.
[This is applicable to most of the commonly used CMSs]





Step 4.
Continue with Installation.

You may get a message about configuration.php as follows.

Still continue with the Installation.
[Or you can grant write permission to document root for a while ]


You will see MySQL setup.
Now we will have to configure MySQL before we go further.
Open Menu > Applications >> Programming >> MySQL Administrator

Login with password you set while installing MySQL-Server Create user.

Set Password for the new user.

Add host to user.

Create a Data-Base ( a.k.a. Schema )

Grant the database permissions to created user.

Now fill up your MySQL information in Joomla installation.






Step 5.
Joomla Set-up will ask for FTP Set-up now. FTP provides some additional functionality but it is not mandatory.
For now, we are skipping this part.
If you want to set-up FTP easily you can use ProFTP (Server) and Gadmin-Proftpd (Front-End)
[You can install these both from Synaptic]





Step 6.
Continue set-up by entering some basic information like password, email, and site name.





Step 7. Now you have Joomla ready to use.
