Requirements

You need Joomla! 2.5 (with PHP, MySQL, Apache and Microsoft II) or greater for this tutorial.

Introduction

Joomla! 2.5 is constructed using three different applications:

  • installation (used for installing Joomla)
  • administrator (used for managing content)
  • public (used for displaying content)

The installation application is used once. The administrator and public are used through the concept of components. Each component has two entry points:

  • one is located in the components directory (it is used for displaying content)
  • one is located in the administrator/components directory (it is used for managing content)

Both are called com_componentname/componentname.php (the com_ prefix is a historical trace)
