Hi All

I have a chance at an internship taking care of a website. The site was built with Joomla. I haven't heard of it. I have used Dreamweaver. I have downloaded and installed Joomla. Will be working by myself at the internship and will have to figure everthing out. Any hints to working with Joomla?

Thanks, Doug

Thanks for the reply. I will ckeck them out. Some of what I read looks like I would have to work on the server, not on my computer and upload it.

Thanks, Doug

I think you can install WAPP on your computers and edit/test all work before uploading the files. Just be sure you have a good web editors that edits PHP files. Might help:

PHP:

Run PHP on your own computer: The easiest way to do this is to install a complete package like XAMPP. This contains the Apache Web server, along with PHP and the MySQL database engine, in one easy-to-install package. XAMPP is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. (A popular alternative on Windows is WampServer.)

Run your PHP scripts on your Web host: If you already have a Web hosting account that supports PHP then you can upload your PHP scripts via FTP and run them on the Web server. The advantage of this approach is that you don't have to install anything; the disadvantage is that it's slower to write and test your scripts.

Copy and paste the script code listed above into a new document in your text editor, then save the file as hello.php in the document root folder — that is, the top level of your website — on your hard drive. If you're not sure where your document root folder is then consult your Web server manual. Common locations include:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
XAMPP on Windows: C:/xampp/htdocs/ (If you install it anywhere else, it WON'T WORK. Save your project in, say C:/xampp/htdocs/mycode/ , where you install "index.php"; Click on xampp-control icon, click "start apache", click "start mysql". Open browser and call php script: http://localhost/mycode/ in the address bar. "index.php" file will be parsed and shown in browser.)

XAMPP on Linux: /opt/lampp/htdocs/
XAMPP on Mac OS X: /Applications/XAMPP/htdocs/

If you want to run the script on your Web hosting account rather than your own computer then you'll need to upload the script using FTP instead.

Joomla is the open source script. Install the joomla in your server and create the website in the Joomla. It is work with your server database. Many servers use in the Joomla scripts.
