    XAMPP into – usually C:\XAMPP or C:\Program Files\XAMPP on Windows.
    2. Open up the folder “htdocs:”
    3. Create a new folder in “htdocs” titled “joomla15.”
    4. Now we need to download the latest copy of Joomla! 1.5 from the net. Go to http://

    If you want to use Joomla as your main page and you are using Apache, you'd copy the joomla files to the /var/www directory. You'd then need to run the installation script from a browser.
