How to Install Joomla on WAMPP

This tutorial will teach you, in a straightforward manner, how to install Xampp (Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl) on a computer using a Windows operating system, and install Joomla on it to test and develop your own website or blog.

To begin, visit the XAMPP for Windows homepage, located at:

You will have several options for which flavor of XAMPP you wish to install, including the Installer, Zip, and 7zip versions. For simplicities sake, this tutorial will use the simplest method: the installer.

Click on the Installer link and you will be redirected to the programs SourceForge page. You may get a pop-up like the one below – if so, click Run:

Next, you will be prompted to choose an installation language. Choose English (or whichever language you wish) and click the "OK" button:

The Welcome to XAMPP Wizard will open. Choose "Next" to continue:

After that, you will be prompted to choose an installation destination. I would stick with the default, which is typically c:xampp:

Next, you will be asked to choose some options. Leave the default settings as shown in the below screenshot amd click the "Install" button:

This will begin the actual installation process. Give it a few minutes and then click the "Finish" button to complete the install of XAMPP:

Finally, another pop-up will appear, telling you that your install was a success and asking whether or not you would like to start the XAMPP Control Panel. Click the "Yes" button:

When the XAMPP Control Panel launches, click the "Start" button next to Apache and MySQL. This will start both services:

Depending on your setting, you may be prompted with two new pop-ups, similar to the one below – click "Unblock" to allow Windows to start the two services:

To see if your installation was a success, open up a new Internet browser and type in the address:


A page similar to the one below should appear if the install was done correctly:

Installing Joomla Locally on a WAMPP

To begin installing Joomla on your WAMPP, you will need to download the CMS (Content Managament System). You can find it at:

Once the file finishes downloading, you will need to create a new folder named “joomla” in the htdocs folder of your xampp directory, usually located at: C:xampphtdocs and drag the .zip file into it..

Unzip the file and wait for it to extract. Once it does, open a browser and navigate to http://localhost/joomla. This will begin the installation process. A screen such as the following should appear:

Choose the language you wish to use and click the Next button.

Next, the Pre-Installation check page will load. If you see a “No” in any of the fields, take the necessary actions to fix the issue and begin the process again. If everything says “Yes”, click the “Next” button.

The next page that loads is the License page. If you agree to the terms of the license, click the Next button to proceed.

After agreeing to the terms, the Database Configuration page appears. For the MySQL database name, type in "test". Use "localhost" as the hostname, and "root" for the username. Then click the Next button.

You can configure you FTP settings on the next page if you like or skip it if not. Once done, click on the Next button again to go to the configuration page. Fill out the site name (for example: Test), your e-mail address, admin name, and password. You can also install sample data (I recommend you do this) by clicking on the Install Sample Data button. Once completed, click the Next button once more.

To finalize installation, click the Remove Installation Folder button. This is very important to ensure your install works properly. After the files have been deleted, click the Site button

Your Joomla test site will now be installed. From here you can do anything you could do with a normal Joomla installation, including creating pages, installing themes, and configuring your test site.

To visit the site, all you have to do is enter in the URL: http://localhost/joomla/
