Step by Step install Joomla with WampServer

Hello everybody, happy thanksgiving :-)

Today I try to explain how to install Joomla. I’m also long time user of Mambo that transform to Joomla. Why I choose Joomla in this post because I have mail from a reader, ask me to show how to install Joomla locally.

If you in researching stage you might want to see these posts :

Create Database for Joomla

Open phpmyadmin and create new database. I create database with name ‘joomla

install_joomla_wamp_3

Set New Domain

I want to try new subdomain for this Joomla installation. (See this post for example add new domain)

I pick name :

Add VirtualHost entry

Open file C:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.11\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf

Add these lines :

<VirtualHost *:80>

DocumentRoot “C:/wamp/www/joomla”
ServerName joomla.batikweb.com
<Directory “C:/wamp/www/joomla/”>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride all

save the file.

Restart wampserver and open from browser : http://joomla.batikweb.com
