Installing Joomla on Ubuntu 22.04

Joomla is a popular open-source content management system (CMS) that allows you to easily 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 Ubuntu 22.04.


Before you begin, make sure you have the following:

  • A server running Ubuntu 22.04.
  • A LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack installed on your server.
  • Sudo privileges on your server.

Step 1: Update System Packages

First, log in to your Ubuntu server and update the system packages to their latest versions:

sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade -y

Step 2: Install Joomla

Next, you need to download and install Joomla. You can download the latest version of Joomla from the official website by using the following command:

cd /tmp wget https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla3/3-9-28/Joomla_3-9-28-Stable-Full_Package.zip

Once the download is complete, unzip the file using the following command:

sudo apt install unzip unzip Joomla_3-9-28-Stable-Full_Package.zip

Move the extracted Joomla files to the Apache web root directory:

sudo mv Joomla_3-9-28-Stable-Full_Package/* /var/www/html/

Set the appropriate permissions for the Joomla files:

sudo chown -R www-data: /var/www/html/ sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/

Step 3: Create a MySQL Database for Joomla

Next, you need to create a MySQL database and user for your Joomla installation. Start by logging in to the MySQL shell:

sudo mysql

Inside the MySQL shell, run the following commands to create a new database and user:

CREATE DATABASE joomla_db; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON joomla_db.* TO 'joomla_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES; EXIT;

Step 4: Configure Joomla

Now, open your web browser and visit your server's IP address or domain name. You will see the Joomla installation page. Select your preferred language and click "Next".

In the next page, enter the database details you created earlier:

  • Database Type: MySQLi
  • Host Name: localhost
  • Username: joomla_user
  • Password: password
  • Database Name: joomla_db

Click "Next" to continue.

On the next page, enter your site details including site name, email, and administrator account information. Click "Next" to proceed.

In the final step, Joomla will perform the installation. Once the installation is complete, click "Remove installation folder" to remove the installation files.

That's it! You have successfully installed Joomla on Ubuntu 22.04. You can now start building your website using the Joomla CMS.
