Instructions for J4 QS installation

Note: The installation of a Quickstart package works basically the same as a normal Joomla! installation!

1. Prepare for Install

1. Create a directory on the web space in which you want to install Joomla! The root directory is usually called "public_html" or "htdocs". It is recommended to install Joomla in a subdirectory.

2. Set this (sub) directory as the target directory for your domain! You can also use a subdomain.

3. Now you still need a MySQL database. It is recommended to create a new database for this!

4. Make a note of basic information about the database (you will need this during configuration):

  • Location of database: mostly "localhost", more rarely an external database server such as ""
  • The database name
  • The database user's name
  • The database user's password


2. Upload of the Installation Files

5. Now the Joomla files (files & directories) must be moved to the directory (Joomla root directory) on the web server. There are 2 options for this:

1st option:

  • First unzip the Quickstart package locally on your computer! The Joomla files are extracted into a folder.
  • Then move all Joomla files that are inside the folder to the web server!
    Use an FTP client such as FileZilla (current version!) for this!

2nd option: (more quickly)

  • First move the Quickstart package to the web server!
    Use an FTP client such as FileZilla (current version!) for this!
  • Then extract the Quickstart package directly on the web server! There are several methods for this, e.g. using your own script or with the help of kickstart.php. Corresponding instructions can be found here:
    Unpacking ZIP


3. Installation - Start

6. Now that all Joomla! files are on the web space, you can use the Joomla! - web installer. Call up your domain in a browser, e.g.!

Manual J4 Start

8. Enter the name of your website! This can be changed later in the global configuration.

9. Click "Setup Login Data" to proceed!


4. Installation - Login Data

10. Enter the following information:

Manual J4 Login Data

  • Real Name: Enter the real name of your Super User! You can change it later under "My Profile" in the administrator interface.
  • Username: Enter the user name for the Super User! You can change it later under "My Profile" in the administrator interface.
  • Password: Enter a secure password for the Super User! This must be at least 12 characters long. You can change it later under "My Profile" in the administrator interface.
  • Email: Enter a valid email address for the administrator! You will also receive the link to change the administrator password at this email address.

11. Click "Setup Database Connection" to go to the next page!!


5. Installation - Database Configuration

12. Fill in all the information about the database that you want to use for Joomla!

Manual J4 Database Configuration

  • Database Type: MySQLi is the common database used.
  • Host Name: Enter the server for your database! Usually this is localhost. However, some servers also use an external database server, e.g.
  • Username: Enter the username for the connection to the database here! Note: This does not mean the username for the administrator!
  • Password: Enter the password for the database's username!
  • Database Name: Enter the name of the database!
  • Table Prefix: Choose the prefix for the DB tables! One is generated automatically, but you can change (e.g. jos3_) . Note the required underscore at the end of the prefix!
  • Connection Encryption: Select "Default (server controlled)" !

13. Click "Install Joomla" to proceed!

Now the installation process starts. A progress bar appears with a status bar.


6. Installation - Congratulations
