How to download a Joomla Quickstart

Quickstart download

You need to be logged in to your DJ-Extensions account. Go to downloads section. Click on "Quickstart" and download the package.

Let's see how to install the Joomla quickstart


Upload the quickstart package to your server.  You can save time by uploading the compressed file and then uncompressing it on the server (if your server allows to). You can also uncompress the file on your desktop and then upload them using FTP.

Create a database.

Joomla quickstart requires a database for installation. If you are using a cPanel server, use the MySQL Database wizard to setup.

If your hosting provider does not use cPanel, you'll need to contact them and ask for creating a new database.

Create your database name, database username, and database password. These informations will be necessary later during the installation.


Type your site's address and the installation process will start automatically. 

On the main configuration page, you'll need to select your language, enter a site name and description, also setup your administrative details (such as username, password, and email address).  Choose "Next"to continue.
