In quick installation, we are going to use Softaculous to install Joomla in a c-panel. This installation will require a hosting with cPanel facility. This installation is very quick and easy to go.
First, we need to log into our hosting using username and password and then access our cPanel. Then we will a see a screen with lot of features. Scroll down, find the auto installer, and then click on to Softaculous icon.
Joomla Installation process
We will see lot of options there. Find the Joomla button and click onto it. Then click on “Install” button.
There are some options like, versions of Joomla, Choose protocol, Choose domain, Database name etc. We will select Joomla 3.2.1 version and choose folder for new application. If we do not want to create it in a new folder, we can always leave it empty.
Now we need to fill some basic information like administrative username, password and e-mail address. We will give a correct email address so that we can regain access after forgetting passwords. Filling each of the information box, we will proceed to install.
Joomla 3.2.1 will be installed in a few seconds. Now we can open our browser tab, navigate our web address and view a standard Joomla website that contains sample data.
