I can’t imagine installing Joomla without instructions like these. It would take me the rest of my life to do so.

I wish my last web hosting company had included a custom Joomla CMS installer. This makes it so simple to install Joomla — and maybe I’m a geek for saying this, but it also kind of makes the installation fun to do, too!
