- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Jen Kramer. Welcome to Installing and Running Joomla! 3 Local and Web Hosted. Joomla! 3, the open-source content management system, can run in two types of environments. One is a local environment that's on the computer in front of you, via MAMP or WAMP. The other is on a web host. Which environment should you use when, and how should you configure these? First, we'll take a look at our local environments, including installing Joomla! With WAMP and making backups locally.
Next, we'll look at Joomla! On a web host, including choosing a web host, installing Joomla! On the host, and placing the site on offline mode. We'll practice moving a Joomla! Site from your local environment to a host, and we'll move the site from a host to a local environment. Finally, we'll look at how to update Joomla! And its extensions. So if you're ready, let's get started with installing and running Joomla! 3: Local and Web-Hosted.
