Installation instructions

These software installation instructions are valid for all extensions present on this website. For each extension there is also a specific installation documentation that you can consult in Documentation.

FREE versions

Initial installation

Go to FREE DOWNLOADS, find the download of the desired extension and, if there is one available whose version is higher than the one you have installed, and it is compatible with your Joomla version, download and install the zip file.

Updates

FREE versions do not currently support the Joomla update process. If you have an old version and want to update you have to download the new version and install it as if it were an initial installation.

PRO versions

Initial installation.

In My downloads you have the extensions that you can download depending on the active subscriptions you have. Just download the zip file and install the extension using the standard Joomla installation process.

If you are going to install it on a local server, and you want to receive software updates in the local server you will have to define a local domain, for example testing.example.com or example.com as localhost name and add it as a virtual host to your web server. This is necessary because the domain you have to authorize to receive software updates must have a correctly formatted domain name.

Updates

The latest PRO versions support the Joomla update process. In order for the update to work properly, you must have authorized the domain where the update will be received and have entered the update code in the extension's configuration. For more information visit Software Updates and FAQs.

TRIAL versions

All TRIAL versions support the Joomla update process.

Initial installation

To perform an initial installation of a TRIAL version it is necessary to install the corresponding STARTER.

A STARTER is a skeleton version (numbered 0.0.X) of an extension that contains the minimum functionality necessary to enable two things:

1. Installing the latest version of the extension compatible with the installed Joomla version, using the Joomla update process.
2. Checking that the domain in which the extension is installed has been authorized to receive software updates.

The STARTER of an extension is installed initially and only once. Once installed, all software updates are made through the Joomla update process.

If an extension is designed to use a STARTER, the first and only installation to be performed will be that of the STARTER.

Once the STARTER is installed, the installation of the extension will take place with the first update. This will occur if the following conditions are met:

  1. There is an available extension version compatible with your installed Joomla version.
  2. You have an active subscription to the extension. If you want to check it, you can do it in My subscriptions.
  3. You have authorized the domain in which you are going to install this starter, to receive software updates. If you want to check it go to My subscriptions and in your extension subscription click on Authorize Domain(s) or See All Authorized Domain(s).

The only extensions currently designed to use a STARTER are the TRIAL versions

If you are going to have the TRIAL version on a local server, you will need to define a local domain, for example trial.example.com or example.com as localhost name and add it as a virtual host to your web server. This is necessary because the domain you have to authorize to receive the TRIAL software must have a correctly formatted domain name.

Updates

The update process is identical to that of the PRO versions.
