How to Install Joomla on CentOS 7

Joomla is an open source content management system that allows users to build and manage websites. It is written in PHP and uses a MySQL database to store content. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of installing Joomla on CentOS 7.


  • A CentOS 7 server with root access
  • A LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack installed on your server
  • A domain name pointed to your server's IP address

Step 1: Update System Packages

Before starting the installation process, it is recommended to update the system packages. You can do this by running the following command:

sudo yum update -y

Step 2: Install Joomla

mysql -u root -p
cd /var/www/html
sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/joomla
sudo nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/joomla.conf

Paste the following configuration into the file:

     	DocumentRoot /var/www/html/joomla     	ServerName your-domain.com     	     	     		Options FollowSymLinks     		AllowOverride All     		Require all granted     	     	     	ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/joomla_error.log     	CustomLog /var/log/httpd/joomla_access.log combined     
sudo systemctl enable httpd
sudo systemctl restart httpd
  1. Create a new MySQL database and user for Joomla:
  2. CREATE DATABASE joomla;
    CREATE USER 'joomlauser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON joomla.* TO 'joomlauser'@'localhost';
  3. Download and extract the latest Joomla package:
  4. sudo wget https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla3/3-9-26/Joomla_3-9-26-Stable-Full_Package.zip
    sudo unzip Joomla_3-9-26-Stable-Full_Package.zip
    sudo mv Joomla*/ joomla
  5. Set proper permissions for the Joomla directory:
  6. Create a virtual host configuration file for Joomla:
  7. Enable the virtual host and restart Apache:
  8. Open your web browser and visit http://your-domain.com to start the Joomla installation process.
  9. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation, providing the database details you created in step 2.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Joomla on your CentOS 7 server. You can now start building and managing your website using Joomla's powerful features.
