FAQ: Express Joomla Installation Service

What is Express Joomla Installation?

Express Joomla Installation is a service offered by CoralixThemes to help users to get their Joomla templates installed quickly and easily.

What do I get when I order the Express Joomla Installation service?

This service includes:

  • Installation of the latest version of Joomla on your server
  • Installation of your purchased Joomla template
  • Import of any demo content included with the template
  • Your website’s name and logo added to the site
  • If you need some further customization done, then we can help you with this for an additional fee.

What don’t I get when I order the Express Joomla Installation service?

This service doesn’t cover:

  • Domain name/web hosting purchase or setup.

You’ll need to have your own web hosting already set up, and have your server details ready to supply to us so that we can get started. If you need help finding a web host, we have some recommendations here.

  • Further customization.

This purchase doesn’t cover any further customization to your site’s design or functionality, beyond adding your website’s name/logo and the template’s demo content.

If you need some further customization done, then your expert can help you with this for an additional fee.

  • Uploading additional site content.

Your expert will upload any demo content that is included with your template (see here for more information on this), but this doesn’t include any additional content (e.g. your own content from another website). If you need to migrate some content across from another website, then your expert can help you with this for an additional fee.

What does Joomla require to be installed on my hosting?

Joomla has certain requirements in order to be installed. Before ordering this service, we recommend confirming with your web host that they meet the following requirements to ensure speedy installation:

Joomla technical requirements

What content will be installed on my website?

We will install any demo content that is included with your template. However, this doesn’t guarantee that your website will look exactly like the template’s Live Preview.

Some templates come with the demo content shown in the template’s Live Preview. Other templates come with different demo content altogether, and some templates do not come with any demo content at all.

This service doesn’t cover the migration of any of your existing content into your new website.

I’ve had my template installed, but how do I get my template further customized?

We offer additional customization services.

You can also request additional work by proposing a custom job.

What if I don’t have web hosting for my site?

A range of CMS-ready hosting options are available on CoralixThemes Get Hosting page.

I already have a Joomla site up and running, can I use the Express Joomla Installation service to have a new template installed on my existing website?

No – if you already have a Joomla website which has content that you want to keep, then our Express Joomla Installation service is probably not right for you.

This service is designed for setting up brand new websites and getting them ready for you to start adding content. Modifying existing content to make sure that it works with a new template is beyond the scope of this service.

Don’t worry though – if you need help setting up a new template on your existing website, you can send us a request for a customization job.

Please note that if you do decide to order the Express Joomla Installation service to be carried out on your existing site, your existing content may be lost or reformatted. Make sure to back up all of your content first if you do decide to do this.
