The Buzz

The URL install for the Updater Pro worked first time Nick - very quick and problem free.

The range of addons available is very comprehensive, including the all-important one-click Joomla 1.5.x version upgrade. I particularly like the way each addon is marked whether it needs legacy mode or not, and the one-click button in the menu to turn that mode on or off for the whole site is just brilliant!

The aWeber/GetResponse site optin included with Updater Pro is just what many Joomla addicts have been looking for - now we no longer need to 'wash' our old subscriber lists through either service to get accepted for double optin status - it's all one-shot automatic with this plugin.

Bottom line - this is going on all my Joomla 1.5 sites and it gets my highest recommendation.

How To Install Joomla!

People often ask how to install Joomla! 1.5 on their websites for use with our products. This short article will point you in the right direction, and give you some tips for questions to ask your host.

There are many great tutorials online, here is where you can find them:

  • Official Joomla Installation Manual

    A manual for the detailed oriented, gives you everything you could possibly need to know about Joomla!

  • Joomla! 1.5 Quickstart Guide

    The quickstart also has a section on installation using XAMP, and is a little more accessible (easier to follow) than the official installation guide. It's worth a read, as it covers many post-installation steps as well.

In addition to the specs listed above, you want to make sure that your hosting account provides "suPHP" or similiar functionality: this allows the files in your account to be "owned" by you, even when the webserver creates them. This functionality is critical in order to avoid problems when running the software.

Additionally, you want to make sure that "allow_url_fopen" is set to "on" and/or your host has CURL installed. (if this is greek, just ask your hosting provider: they'll be able to tell you)

Without at least one of these enabled, you may not be able install software remotely. Note: your host doesn't meet these requirements, you can still use much or our software by downloading and installing the CURL emulation plgin.


Finally, once Joomla! is installed, you'll want to make maintenance a cinch with the Intellispire installer software. Click to Download the Joomla! Updater.
