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 EXABYTES.com.my CPanel and found out that they do support these requirements. Thank God!

1. Installation

  • First you need to download the installation file from http://www.mobilejoomla.com . 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.
