TZ Vania 1.5 Template

Documentation 1.5

Thank you for purchasing my theme. If you have any questions that are beyond the scope of this help file, please feel free to post it on out forum here. Thanks so much!This documentation was made only with the Documenter (except the images)

Quickstart Installation

Quickstart = Joomla + Vania Template + Demo Content. After installation you'll see complete site like a Demo Site. So, if you're running for new website, I do urge to install using the quickstart file. But, If you've already had a joomla website with your own content, you could install only the Template to keep your own data

Installing Quickstart package is quite easy as you install normal joomla!. Please follow these steps:

  1. You will have 2 options:
    • Upload the quickstart.zip file to your host and extract it using cPanel or other File Manager Tools if possible.
    • If the option above unavailable, you can extract the quickstart.zip file on your computer, and upload all files to your host using FTP client program such as filezilla.
  2. Start installation by typing your URL to the directory you have placed quickstart files. The installation page should be appeared as normal Joomla! installation.

  3. Complete Install

    You're now in the end of installation process, and then you must now directly remove the installation folder.
    But, Sometimes this process could not write to the configuration.php file. So you should have this below image, and follow the instruction to copy the content of the box to your configuration.php file

  4. Login into your administrator panel using "admin" as username and using a your password.

Please make sure your server suppoorts MySQLi Database. And if you're unsuccessful following the steps above, you could please PM me, I will send you the website files and SQL separatedly

Template Installation
