I suppose you have a valid administrator login the control panel of your domain name.

If you dont’t, pls contact your web-hosting company.

a) Install on domain: enter domain name. Mine came pre-filled: nairabytes.com

b) Install in directory: for this tutorial, I’m installing WordPress into its own directory ‘jm’ – without the quotes. Note, the access URL will be http://mydomainname.com/jm. If ‘install in directory’ option is left blank, Joomla will be installed in the default public folder provided by your webhost.

c) Admin access data:
– fill in a username and password for accessing the site.

d)Base configuration:
admin e-mail: enter a valid email address for the administrator account.

Admin full name: enter a name

Site name: enter the name of your domain.

Install Sample Data: leave ‘checked’

After supplying necessary details, hit ‘Install Joomla 1.5’.

 

step-3) Hurrayyy, the installation is complete. The portion red-marked is private to your own installation.
