Bluehost Help – Bluehost has 1 Click Installs for many software scripts.  This includes the most popular CMS – Joomla.  It is very simple to Install and you do not need to create any MySQL Databases or MySQL Database Users or configure any files.  This is a huge improvement from when I started using Joomla back in the days.    To Install the latest version of Joomla (currently it’s Joomla 1.6.3), here are steps to help you:
