  • Anyone with specific questions about installing Joomla 3.X.x on a particular stack server on their local PC (WampServer 2, XAMPP, MAMP, or LAMP). There is no guarantee that you will get an answer but we try. Alternatively go directly to the Web site of the stack(s) you are using.
  • Anyone with server issues identified during the Joomla 3.X.x installation process. This Forum is not however a replacement for your own host's help desk or support service. Again there is no guarantee of an answer to your particular question.

  • Anyone posting anything at all about Joomla 2.5., 1.7., 1.6., 1.5., 1.0..
