Default Joomla 1.5

I believe this software has the clearest (and most accurate) set of installation instructions I have seen anywhere. The longest part was waiting for the files to get up to the server.

There was one tiny error: In checking requirements, Joomla said the configuration.php file was not writable. Then it said not to worry because I could upload one and change permissions after the installation finished.

First I figured I would go and raise the permissions; only there was only the configuration.php-dist file on the server. I thought of making a copy and raising its permissions, but instead decided to take the installer at its word.

Everything went fine. When I went to the server to delete the installation folder and upload a config.php file, I found that Joomla had already created it. So I fixed the permissions, and now am working through the setup, which is not so well documented, unfortunately.

For one thing, I want to change the language to U.S. English, which is not an option. And have to figure out where the doctype and charset info is stored (and where it is called). The structure of the thing is not clear in my mind yet (obviously).

Oh, well. As Marjolein says: need to learn a new thing every day!
