Joomla 1.6 supports several installation units for extensions (components, plugins, modules), language files, or arbitrary sets of files.

Supported Installation Units

The following types of installation units are supported in Joomla 1.6+. The links are to examples in the Joomla 1.6 development code.

Note that most of these links are to the SVN repository. To see the contents of a file, click on the link to the file and then look for the 'View' link beside the 'Links to HEAD' near the top.
  • An arbitrary set of files named 'files_test1'
    • The 'files' installation unit allows installation of an arbitrary set of files that can be put anywhere in the Joomla file folders. It provides a useful way to install language files for groups of extensions.
