My first attempt installing MobileJoomla! for Exabytes Hosting

Will it work? Before installing MobileJoomla! check your server configuration. The server must has the following;

  • PHP 5.0
  • MySQL 5.0 (if you try running Mobilejoomla! on MySQL 4 you will get all sort of funny error messages)
  • Joomla! 1.5
  • GD2 (PHP image library for image scaling)
  • bzip2 (PHP bz extension, prerequisitement for TeraWURFL device database)
  • mysqli (prerequisitement for TeraWURFL device database)
  • Procedure creation right in MySQL database
  • File creation rights on PHP
  • At least 100 MB of database disk space
  • At least 64 MB of memory for running PHP scripts (PHP memory limit)

I’ve checked with the CPanel and found out that they do support these requirements. Thank God!

1. Installation

  • First you need to download the installation file from . However you need to register to the website first (very simple registration and off course email verification).


  • Use the Joomla! default installer to install the mobile extension.


2. A little configuration to enable the mobile mode (actually you don’t have to do this).

3. Use your mobile browser to check the mobile mode.


4. Done … Isn’t that easy.
