Dreamhost is a great Webhosting provider.   Most of my websites are hosted by them.   If you decide to purchase Dreamhost and Install Joomla 1.7, the One Click Installs only Install the Joomla 1.5.  So if you need to Install Joomla 1.7 or any later versions, you will need to do it manually.  I’ve created several tutorials on how to install Joomla 1.7 on Dreamhost.  This is my first time creating a video to demonstrate.   I hope this is more beneficial to you.

Since I get bored watching a super long video on how to do something, I created several chapters for this exercise.  How to Install Joomla 1.7 on Dreamhost contains 7 chapters:

If you want to install Joomla 1.7 on your dreamhost Webhosting server, below are instructions on how to do this.  You can follow along in the video tutorial.

  4. Download the ZIP file to your HD
  5. Do NOT unzip the file
