This is the second BETA run of this class.  This means that in addition to this class being free, I will be asking folks to provide feedback on what can be done to improve this workshop.  This class will remain free at Fresh Workshops.



  • Desktop or Laptop on a high speed connection
  • Windows XP or Vista
  • Ability to call a long distance number (you can use Skype's monthly $3 plan for this)

This class is for people who plan to install their own version of Joomla.  We will be installing a webserver locally on your computer, talking about best practices and working in phpMyAdmin, MySQL.  Cpanel is a popular control panel for website hosting accounts.  It will be discussed but not used so don't worry if you don't have a domain or hosting space.  This workshop is to learn the basics of installing Joomla. 

If you don't need to know how to install Joomla, don't sign up.
