Now that you have a server, lets deal with the Joomla file that you downloaded. The file is compressed so you need an extracting software like WinRar to extract the file to a folder. Lets name this folder as JoomlaTraining. This means all the Joomla files are inside the JoomlaTraining Folder.

Next, you will copy the JoomlaTraining folder to the a subfolder called www in your AMPPS folder. By default, AMPPS would be installed to your c:\ drive. This means the JoomlaTraining will be in this path. c:\Ampps\www\JoomlaTraining.

WAMPP and WAMPP will have similar path.

Now lets install Joomla but before we do, lets create a database and a user for the database.

Creating a database: .
Open your browser and type: localhost:8080/phpmyadmin and then press enter. You'll have a screenshot as the one below.

Now, in the phpmyadmin environment, click on Users..then below it, you will see, Add user, click on it. The add user environment opens.

1. Enter User name, in this case lets use: joomxyz
2. Then under Host, select local
3. Password: user123
4. Re-type(password): user123.

Scroll down to see: Database for user
1. Check: Create database with same name and grant all privileges

Scroll down a little to see: Global privileges (Check All /Uncheck All)
Click: "Check All" in the Global privileges (Check All /Uncheck All).

From the above, our
1. Database name: joomxyz
2. Username: joomxyz
3. Password: user123.

Please note the above parameters because we will soon need them to install our Joomla site.

If you have done everything as specified above, you will have a screenshot as the one shown below.

One of the easiest IT area that cost very little or nothing to start is information marketing. There are several information related services on the internet. The most common is owning a blog where you can write about anything and also sell same info, product or services. To own a blog will not cost you a dime if you want to use a free blogging application on the internet. You can go to http://blogspot.com to set up a free account. And you'll be in the mainstream of information marketing because blogspot has all it takes to have a successful blog.

I hope it is phpmyadmin that you are using. If it is, then to make creating a database and its user easier for you, instead of creating the database first before the user and subsequently adding the user to the database, just click on Users...scroll down in the next window and click add user. Choose local as host, then enter the user's name, eg joomxyz and a password eg user123

Scroll down to see: Database for user 1. Check: Create database with same name and grant all privileges

Scroll down a little to see: Global privileges (Check All /Uncheck All) Click: "Check All" in the Global privileges (Check All /Uncheck All).

From the above, our
1. Database name: joomxyz
2. Username: joomxyz
3. Password: user123.

But if you have challenges doing this, just create a database called joomxyz. By default, this database user name is root and its password is blank ie it has no password.

So your own parameters will now be
1. Database name: joomxyz
2. Username: root
3. Password: (empty).

Ok. Did you make any alterations to the application files, if so, then revert. MySQL usually don't give issues, Apache does most times. One other question, do you have any other related program like WAMPP or XAMPP running? If yes, you need to uninstall them because there is bound to be a conflict.

If the above didn't work, uninstall and reinstall AMPPS. You may also get support from http://ampps.com. That's the official site of that application.

Please let us know how you are faring.

oluchi jud: like someone asked?... Wat if one has Xampp already?... Wat wld b d installation process?... Btwn wordpress n joomla, wch is more flexible?

If you have XAMPP already installed. Then access the Joomla file folder in your htdocs in the root directory through the localhost server on your browser and begin the Joomla installation ie. C://localhost/htdocs/JoomlaTraining. Where JoomlaTraining is the folder where you have your extracted Joomla Files. Your installation will start.

Remember to create your database and its user as you will need those parameters during the installation process.

As for flexibility between Joomla and Wordpress. Wordpress deals more with sites that are content driven like blogs while Joomla is very versatile in creating more complex sites like ecommerce sites, jobs board, social media etc. Joomla can also do content driven sites as well.

Joomla has an edge when it comes to community.
