Re: [SLUG] Joomla

I'd have no idea either why it's not in the ubuntu repos, I dunno if u could add something in sources.lst ... Tho that may be changed since I used ubuntu too.

Anyway I'm posting cos I stumbled on this before, http://www.turnkeylinux.org/

I think it's ubuntu based, includes joomla, mysql, and apache I think. Could be a little bloated tho, I dunno. May be an all in one fuss free solution?

Several questions here - I've answered them separately for clarity:
Q: Why is Joomla! not in the repositories?
A: I think it was at one point, but I prefer to install this type of application manually - I've found that patches and critical security stuff take too long to filter through the repositories, and the manual patch process is usually a no-brainer.

Q: Unknown suffix error message
A: Use 'unzip' as the archive is in pkzip format not gzip.

Q: How do I get a copy of Joomla! installed?
A: I'm assuming you have Apache, PHP and MySQL already installed - these are pre-requisites. You've downloaded the archive - that's the first step. The brief instructions are to unzip the archive in your apache doc root directory, create a MySQL database and user and then browse to the location where you installed the archive - an installation window will be displayed and you just follow the instructions.

If the above is too brief, try the instructions at http://help.joomla.org/content/category/15/99/132/

Joomla is a great CMS - stick with it and Good Luck!
