I see where I can use Fantastico to install Joomla 1.5 but Joomla is currently on version 2.5 - is there a way to install the latest version - or a valid reason why I should install several versions back?

Hi Carlakay813,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. Fantastico does not contain Joomla 2.5 currently so you will not be able to install it through Fantastico. However, we have some great tutorials on Joomla 2.5, so here's one on installing it:

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

Thanks!

Fantastico, a feature in cPanel that helps you easily install programs to your account, is no longer available. As of September 17th, 2012, Fantastico has been replaced by Softaculous.

This article is being kept in our Support Center for our VPS and Dedicated Customers who may still be using Fantastico. For all other users, please see our Softaculous software installation guide for more help with installing programs such as WordPress and Joomla.

Simplest way - install 1.7 with Fantastico (which is now available through Fantastico.)

After installation, log in to the administrative back end. Go to Extension Manager, then click on the update tab. Click on "find updates", and you will then be presented with the option to upgrade to the latest 2.5 version. Click to update and you are done.
