My notes on getting a Joomla install going on Ubuntu Server 14.04
Run Tasksel to install unzip and LAMP stack
aptitude install --with-recommends unzip
Select LAMP Server and click OK. You will be prompted to enter a password for the ‘root’ user for MySQL. Remember what you entered for later.
Create a database in MySql for Joomla to use
mysql -u root -p
CREATE DATABASE joomlaDb;
CREATE USER joomlauser;
SET PASSWORD FOR joomlauser = PASSWORD(“joomlapassword”);
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON joomlaDb.* TO joomlauser@localhost IDENTIFIED BY ‘joomlapassword’;
Download and unpack Joomla
unzip -q Joomla_3.3.0-Stable-Full_Package.zip -d /var/www/html/joomla
chown -R www-data.www-data /var/www/html/joomla/
Fire up a web browser and hit the joomla site you just setup to finalize the configuration
Folow the on screen instructions.
One thought on “Joomla 3 on Ubuntu 14.04”
Your guide is surely brief and to the point.
I just checked in here because I was unsure if I was doing it right this time around.
I recently installed ubuntu 13.10 on my computer. Configured everything like I used to. However, I get a blank page for Joomla Installation. It has never happened to me before and have been sctatching my head and pulling some hair out since about a couple of hours.
Any idea what could be wrong?
