Joomla! is used in creating versatile website and manage content like static pages, blogs, polls, news feeds, and search features. The features that attract developers to adopt Joomla! are the rich looks that it gives the websites and the level of ease in developing sites for the developers.

Installing Joomla!

Once, while installing, it is made sure that the requirements are met by the webhosts then the task of installing is very simple and straightforward. These include an Apache Web Server, a MySQL database, and PHP. The webhost company can be contacted to gain information on the availability of PHP, MySQL and Apache in the server. If these are not available in the server then they have to be installed individually and if that is not possible a new host has to obtained. Joomla is designed for and tested on many LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) configurations, but it might work on some Windows or MacOS systems, too. The installation process consists of two stages and they are:

• FTP the files to server

• Run the obtained installer file which will setup the necessary files on the platform

Joomla! will automatically manage the permissions for every file and directory on the site via FTP, so separately doing this task will not be necessary.

Plugins – Joomla! Extensions

Like every other Content Management System, Joomla! too needs extensions in the form of plugins to work as a complete unit. There are latest plugins which are developed in massive quantities by Joomla developers every day. The Joomla! SEO Patch is a very vital plugin which is provided as a free commercial version by its developer. For backup and site maintenance there is another plugin called the Joomla! Pack which is a suite of enhanced tools which optimizes the usage of Joomla! by Joomla! developers to enhance the site. VirtueMart is another plugin which enables the conversion of a Joomla! site into a complete e-store.

The Joomla extension directory offers a lot of additional functionality for Joomla sites. To find if a specific extension is active and being updated the reviews on that extension could be referred.

Templates

Numerous Joomla! templates are available on the internet as per requirements Joomla programmers can opt for the ones provided for free or the ones that are tagged premium which could be bought. Apart from the major entities of a template which are the images, HTML and CSS code, Joomla! developers can also use new functionalities called “Modules”. Different components and entities could be added by Joomla! developers to their sites using these Modules in a very simple and effortless way. By adding a unique code the Joomla! developers can add Modules to their website and pages easily.

Components, Forms and other website "stuff"

The latest components that are being developed by developers from all over the world are acting as the backbone for all Joomla! sites and pages. The latest components that are being built will not be installed with the Joomla! pack, so users have to install these components separately to be updates with state of the art developments. Forms can be instantaneously created in Joomla! and can be added to the page or site immediately. One of the simplest form creators is the component perForms.
