Few days ago, Microsoft released the final version of Internet Explorer 9 (IE9). We tested our templates and extensions with it and noted errors in 12 templates and Effects Rotator, Carousel and Carousel Pro extensions. The most common issue was incompatibility with older versions of jQuery. As soon as we updated it to the latest version 1.5, the problems were solved. In addition, we used CSSPie on some templates to make IE compatible with some CSS3 techniques, such as rounded borders and gradients. That caused problems in new IE9 that we had to solve.
This tutorial will explain you how to import complete Joomla database from one site to another, using SQL dump file and phpMyAdmin software installed on your server. This is useful if you need to duplicate existing Joomla site. It will save you a lot of work.

In HotStart installation instructions, you will read "unzip and upload". When we tell you to upload, we are not telling you to randomly upload HotStart files anywhere on your server. Please upload to an empty directory that is accessible via web browser (it's usually inside public_html or httpdocs directory)! Not all directories of your hosting space are accessible via web browser.
