new user :/ need help!! PLEASE

Postby lisa1991 » 15. March 2013 21:57

I have downloaded Xampp onto my windows vista and now downloaded the Joomla 3.0 version. I am filling in the database configuration and I am struggling as I have got to the database name and I don't understand where I get this from? Can anybody help ?

I started using the Joomla 1.5 version at university and I was really interested in the software however it was already installed so I didnt get to see how this was done.


Many thanks guys :D

Hi lisa1991,

Please start new threads with the words "Hi" or "Hello". A short salutation is an act of politeness. Even if the internet is an virtual area, there is always a human being behind the screen. A polite beginning is the first positive impression you can leave here and helps to get polite answers too. Please keep that in mind if you start a new thread in any community board. Thank you.

Your topic headline is not self speaking. What should someone expect from that headline if he searches for a solution of his issue in some already solved topics?

You need to create a new database first. This can be done in phpmyadmin.

best wishes,
