Hi again,

You probably need to give more details to get attract good and appropriate response. Without this for example I will two quite different answers (neither of which might be right on the mark!):

1. The technical answer - you need to have a suitable registered domain name and hosting service and then download the Joomla install file from joomla.org and then upload it to your
hosting service, extract it and then point your web browser to http://yoursite.domain/installation/ and then follow the prompts. Much fuller and better step by step instructions can be found at http://docs.joomla.org/Joomla_Installation. You also need to decide whether you should install the new Joomla 1.6.1 version or the earlier 1.5.22 version - probably the former unless you know you are needing an extension that is not compatible with the new 1.6 branch.

2. Project answer - you need to look at the content, technical skills and functionality you need to achieve the goals of the end website and determine which people and what extensions you need to make this work. This could include someone with experience in installing and configuring Joomla sites. Check out the support requirements that the people you need for content will need (and whether they will require back end administrator access to the site or only front-end), and check out how the various extensions might work together (or not).

Best wishes for your project.

Boy, this is an openended question isn't it?

You would have to know exactly what it is you are trying to achieve before you even start. You will want a firm grasp on the PHP language and database management.
You can start with a book (or two) from packt publishing, they have a few relating to Joomla Development.

Set up a localhost system on your own machine for testing and install the latest J! there. Take time (a lot of time) and go through the J! code for examples of the coding practises there, and reade the API docs at joomla.org....
Oh ya,  and have fun!

It depends on many things.

Is a website, an intranet or an ecommerce store or any other type of content.
Once you identify this we can help you more.

Here's the absolute basic steps.

1. Decide on the Idea for your site & identify what you need & your budget (not everything is free)
2. Get suitable JoomlaCompliant Website Hosting
3. Install Joomla manually or by script(if provided by host), most these days do)
4. use default template or buy another or design one or get one designed
5. Install all the modules/components/plugins you need
6. Add  your content


This is the most basic steps, if you give us an idea of what you need I can be more specific.

If its for an intranet I wrote an article on this.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Content_Management/WebBased_CMS/Joomla/A_4220-How-to-set-up-Joomla-on-a-Windows-2003-Server-Perfect-for-Intranets.html

It details all the steps from server setup to database config on windows machines.

The best way to get a Joomla website is to speak to a developer and get a idea of the options, and setup a budget for the project
Gettings a developer to make the site might be cheaper in the long run as they will configure advanced freatures like security, SEO and payement processors if they are needed.

The joomla web site is a garbage. That does not help a lot.

It is a mess!!!


I will accept all of your question, because I do not want anyone complain later.
