Joomla Tutorial Requirements

To start our Joomla development with PhpED we will need to get our basic Joomla environment setup on our workstation. The workstation that we will be using will be a PC running Windows XP Pro. We will need to get the following installed: PhpED, XAMPP and Joomla.

PhpED

You can download a trial version of the latest PhpED from the NuSphere website (http://www.nusphere.com). We may need to tweak the installation a bit later so write down or remember where you installed PhpED.

XAMPP

XAMPP provide the web server (apache) and database (MySQL) that the Joomla CMS requires. It also provides another web based utility that we will use for basic database admin, phpMyAdmin. You can download the latest version from http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html. I will be using the latest edition of XAMPP, but most recent versions will also work fine.

Joomla

In this tutorial we will be focusing on developing on the 1.0.13 version of Joomla. You can download Joomla at http://www.joomla.org.
