1) Extract the main directory, let's say JS2GO.XXXXXX, included, using 7-Zip to the ROOT of any logical partition or HD available, let's say E:\JS2GO.XXXXXX or F:JS2GO.XXXXXX... or, if no 'data only' drive or partition available, to C:\JS2GO.XXXXXX. Note that to use the system drive or partition may need to set 'Administrator Rights' giving 'full control' to user 'everyone' to the main directory C:\JS2GO.XXXXXX on some MS Windows systems to be able to install extensions or to use some components like AkeebaBackup within your Joomla! Project. Recommended to use the root of any other logical data partition or hard disk to around the mentioned potential Windows 10, 8+, 7 requirements in some particular systems.
2) You may wish to rename the main directory as you wish but always with as much short name as possible and without blanks (on this guide, renamed E:\JS2GO.XXXXXX to E:\MyJoomla)
3) After extraction, you will see inside the new main directory, let's say E:\MyJoomla a single joomlas2go.exe file as follows:
- joomlas2go.exe: This file is the one you must run to start-up the servers and the preset Firefox Portable 'SpeedDial' browser window as your Desktop Development Environment with all your Joomla! Projects mapped in.
4) To shutdown the server or to access the UwAMP server GUI, close the browser window first and right-click on the new Light-Blue U icon located at the system tray, located close to the Windows clock at the down-right side of your screen and left-click on 'Stop Server‘ before to exit the UwAMP GUI
Recommended to use the built-in 'Speed Dial‘ to open the frontend of your desided Joomla! Project but you may load it going to: http:/ /127.0.0.1:4001/joomla**/
Recommended to use the built-in 'Speed Dial‘ to open the frontend of your desided Joomla! Project but you may load it going to: http://127.0.0.1:4001/joomla**/administrator/ and login, by default, with username: admin and password: demo
To manage your DB's recommended to use the built-in 'Speed Dial' desktop ‘dial’ but you may load it going to http://127.0.0.1:4001/mysql/ and login with username: root and password: root
Your Joomla! files are, by default, located at: \joomlas2go\www\joomla**\
Your MySQL DB's are, by default, located at: \joomlas2go\bin\database\mysql-x.x.x\data\
Yes! Just keep in mind the following configuration.php settings for j25+ & j36+:
- To grand access to MySQL when installing Joomla!:
public $dbtype = 'mysqli';public $host = '127.0.0.1:7188';public $user = 'root';public $password = 'root';public $db = 'xxxxx36db'; public $cache_handler = 'file';public $dbprefix = 'pr3f1x_';
- Fixing external /logs and /tmp folders will allow you copy or duplicate your main Joomlas2Go! folder, let's say C:\ MyJoomla to E:\MyProject01, without losing its absolute paths . Don't worry about them, those hidden folders are being deleted and recreated automatically at every joomlas2go.exe run:
public $log_path = 'C:\\_Js2GoTMP/logs';public $tmp_path = 'C:\\_Js2GoTMP/tmp';
Our current system doesn't allow us to easily meet the new EU e-commerce VAT rules that took effect January, 1 2015 by applying the tax % as per the donor country location plus to correctly create its corresponding invoice automatically. Due to that tech. limitation in our current system and as the first step, we had no other choice than to limit Joomlas2Go! to be only available to non EU countries from January, 1 2015. As 2nd. step, we are still discussing internally the convenience to implement the big changes to this website to meet the new EU VAT rules by assuming its involved development cost or even considering if the best could be just to close the donation system and don't allow new members to donate and be booked.> No matter what the final decision could be, this site and latest Joomlas2Go! Packs will be punctually updated when needed and will remain available to all our current members with an active license at least till end 2020. We'll update this notification as soon as new information become available.> Many online articles arose recently about the new 2015 EU VAT rules. Just google for EU e-commerce VAT rules 2015, watch the YouTube video: How the new EU VAT rules and MOSS will affect you and if still with doubts or questions feel free to Contact us.
