How to install joomla template
We shall understand everything there is on how to install Joomla template. But first, let’s understand what joomla is all about.
Joomla is a Content Management system(CMS) like WordPress, Drupal, Magento and the rest of them.
CMS is a computer system that lets a user do some basic tasks on a website. Tasks like creating website content,
modifying and deleting content, inserting and publishing content.
We have two CMS elements known as CMA (Content Management Application) and CDA (Content Delivery Application).
The CMA is used to do all the above-mentioned tasks(content modification, creation, etc), without having to understand any programming language. While the CDA is like the engine behind the CMA.
CDA is the actual implementation of those tasks performed by the user. That is, a website is updated based on the tasks performed by the user.
Joomla is one of the many content management systems we have, it has some magnificent features
that will make any website look like “made in heaven” (don’t mind me, i just wanted to make you smile..).
