Joomla explained

We already have a couple of clients with Joomla installations on Mello Web Hosting so if your new to Joomla and your looking to install it somewhere that you can receive experienced advice on setting up and running Joomla installs then you can give us a call.

If you are new to installing Joomla then it can look very different to WordPress and other software. It can be a daunting to a new starter but with Mello Hosts you can have it can be set up and running in minutes with the Spectaculous installer, or if you have a special requirements like restoring it from a backup then we can help and guide you through the process.

So if you have queries like the version of PHP that you require or which PHP Modules you would like to run for your installation, that is if your install extensions have any special requirements.

If you are new to Joomla, or even if you’re experienced, then we have a couple of recommendations for you; we recommend Akeeba BackUp and Akeeba Admin tools.

We have always found Admin Tools useful for restricting unauthorised access to sites including banning nuisance IPs and for    ensuring that your site is kept up to date by sending you reminders about software upgrades. Along with Akeeba Backup, which is designed to back up your whole directory to remote locations and even automatically schedule backups so you know you always have a safe copy elsewhere.
