Getting started on your Joomla Web site is easy. Many hosting services offer a simple one-click installation, but if you'd rather be more hands-on, have more control or are your own host, all you need is an Apache Web server with PHP and MySQL. If you want to test Joomla! on your own local server or computer, you will need WAMP, MAMP or LAMP depending on your operating system. This way you can test Joomla! before publishing your site live on the web.
