Joomla 1.5 installation

Note: Joomla 1.0 will not be supported although the current leonardo version seems to be running on it.
so DONT use 1.0. No support will be ever provided !!

Steps:

STEP 1) Uncompress the leonardo zip or tgz in the same dir as your joomla installation.

If you have joomla on / then you will have a dir /leonardo

or

If you have joomla on /joomla then you will have a dir /joomla/leonardo

Also uncompress the zip in your local PC to have it ready for STEP 4

STEP 2) Edit all config files as explained in the main installation instructions.

(you may skip this step for later whern yoyu have leonardo working)

STEP 3) edit file leonardo/site/config_op_mode.php and set $opMode= 2;

STEP 4) From joomla administration got to 'Extensions' -> 'Install /Uninstall'

and in "Upload Package File" browse for file leonardo/doc/install/joomla/com_leonardo_3.0.0.zip

from your local copy and install it

STEP 4) Copy leonardo/doc/install/joomla/htaccess.txt on joomla/components/com_leonardo/

and rename it to .htaccess if you are on a unix server. Then edit the file to edit the real path to leonardo

for example if your joomla is on /joomla then make the line

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /leonardo/$1

to

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /joomla/leonardo/$1

STEP 5) Create the DB tables as explained in common INSTALLATION instructions

NOTE: USE the UTF8 sql files

STEP 6) Create a new menu item from joomla adminostrator and select its type as "Leonardo"

 

you are done! Access leonardo from the newly created menu item in joomla frontend.
