So I have a couple of websites that I am trying to get live on the web. One is a community site the other a prototype of a concept that I have in mind. I have a hosting package on DreamHost and was able to use the "One-Click Installs" to load Joomla. You have to setup a database and a user account for the database. But really that was it.
If you don't know Joomla is an open source content management system that allows you to create websites without programming. I would much rather learn to program my own site, but "Learn to Program" has been on my todo list for years. So something like this is my alternative.
Once it is installed, they send you an email with some additional instructions. I followed them as close as possible and I have the site up and working. I did forget what I had set as a username, so it took me a couple of tries to get in, my mistake not theirs. Now, I really need to learn how to use Joomla.
