Joomla! 3.x 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 with modules. Each module has a single entry point located in the modules directory. This is called mod_modulename/modulename.php (the mod_ prefix is a historical trace)

Requirements

You need the latest version of Joomla! 3.x (with PHP, MySQL, Apache and Microsoft II) for this tutorial (as of writing currently 3.1.1)
