Default Joomla 404 page

Joomla installed on your server will change default browser's 404 page to something what you can see on this picture. It's not perfect, but still better than default browser error page. At least, there's a link that leads to the home page of your web site. Not bad, but could be much better.

Is your Joomla website hacked recently? Is this repeating from time to time? Did your web hosting provider warn you that your account may be suspended if this repeats again? Even if all your answers are "no", it's still recommended to follow these security steps to make your Joomla website secure.

How To Upgrade Joomla 1.5

Let's imagine this situation. When you installed Joomla for your website, you used the latest stable version of Joomla (in example 1.5.9). You developed your website and you are happy with it.

In the first chapter of our series of Joomla tutorials, we will cover the installation of a web server software on your local computer. To run Joomla, we need a web server enabled with php and mysql database. Most of you have the PC computers with Windows XP or Vista. Therefore, with your operating system alone, you don't have what's necessary to run Joomla locally.
