In this tutorial, we will walk you through installing Joomla using the Fantastico tool within your cPanel.
First, log into your cPanel and click the "Fantastico De Luxe" icon.
Next, click "Joomla 1.5" in the left menu.
Then, click "New Installation" on the right side of the page.
Next, fill out the details on the right and click "Install Joomla 1.5".
Install on domain
If you have more than one domain name on your account, use the drop down list to select which domain to install Joomla into.
Install in directory
If you would like to install Joomla into a subdirectory, such as domain.com/joomla, enter the name of the sub directory here. For example, if you wanted to install joomla to domain.com/blog, enter blog as the "Install in directory".
Admin access data
To log into the Joomla admin section so that you can manage your new Joomla driven website, you'll need to enter a username and password. Under "Admin access data", create any username and password that you would like.
Fill out this area with your email address, full name, and the name of your site. If you are new to Joomla, you may want to select the option to install sample data. This will give you a head start in figuring out how Joomla works.
This next page is more of just a summary, click "Finish Installation".
On this final page, you will see a confirmation that your new installation of Joomla has been successfully install. It will show you the username and password you created, and will also list important URLs that you may want to bookmark. If you would like to have this information emailed to you as well, enter your email address in the bottom field and click "Send E-mail"
Congratulations, you've just installed Joomla! When you visit your site, it should look similar to the below screenshot:
