Installing Joomla on OpenServer: learn how to get up and running in minutes, with an example.

Installing Joomla on OpenServer

OpenServer is a powerful, open source web server solution that is optimized for hosting websites, applications, and services. It provides an easy-to-use interface that allows users to quickly and securely set up a web server. In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Joomla on OpenServer.

Before we begin, make sure you have the following prerequisites:

  • A domain name registered with a domain registrar
  • An OpenServer account
  • The latest version of Joomla downloaded from the official website

Once you have these prerequisites, you can begin the installation process. The first step is to log in to your OpenServer account and select the “Domains” tab. From here, you will be able to create a new domain, or edit an existing one. Select the domain you wish to use for your Joomla installation and click the “Edit” button.

In the “Edit Domain” window, select the “Web” tab and enter the path to the directory where you want your Joomla installation to be stored. For example, if you want to install Joomla in the “public_html” directory, enter “/public_html” in the “Web directory” field.

Once you have entered the path to the directory, click the “Save” button to save the changes. Now you are ready to upload the Joomla files to your server.

Using an FTP client, connect to your OpenServer account and upload the Joomla files to the directory you specified in the “Web directory” field. Once the files have been uploaded, you can proceed to the next step.

In your web browser, go to the URL of the directory where you uploaded the Joomla files. You should see the Joomla installation page. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation. Once the installation is complete, you can access the Joomla admin panel by going to the URL of your Joomla installation and adding “/administrator” to the end of the URL.

That’s it! You have successfully installed Joomla on OpenServer. Now you can start building your website or application with Joomla.
