The tutorials on this page will guide you through the core steps for setting up a new Joomla website, or migrating an existing Joomla 1.0.x installation to a new Joomla 1.5.x installation. To install Joomla 1.5 to your RokitWeb hosting account, we recommend using our Installatron installation module and you can find tutorials on using Installatron here.
* Important Note *
It is very important that you keep your Joomla installation and any plugins you have installed up to date at all times. Updates can include patches for both bug fixes and security issues that have been discovered, and not installing updates promptly upon their release could result in your website being compromised.

* If you installed Joomla using Installatron, you can perform automated updates using your Installatron console. It is also important to note that each Joomla installation is different and the plugins you have installed may affect how easily the installation can be upgraded. Please make sure you always back up your Joomla website before performing any updates as RokitWeb does not take responsibility for issues that arise from following these tutorials.
