Integrate civiCRM 2.2.9 in Joomla 1.5.14

I’ve been working whole day on setting up a machine for WAMP use and this post is just to cover the issue i faced while installing civi into joomla.

I was able to install joomla without any issues and i had to spend good time with google to look out for way of setting up civi. I downloaded civi and i extracted the com_civicrm under this location C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\joomla\administrator\components\

then i went to Joomla->extensions->install/uninstall option and opted Install from Directory. I selected the above extracted path with install.civicrm.php file and clicked install and came across the “JInstaller cant copy the file….” error and then i came across this link that gave me idea of my solution.

and i found that there is an issue with civi and joomla handshake and i found a very easy workaround in few steps. Joomla uses its tmp directory for installing any new component and the folder is C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\joomla\tmp so this is the folder where joomla copied the insallter php file in this case install.civicrm.php

So i copied the com_civicrm folder under tmp folder and after that i moved “admin” and “site” from  C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\joomla\tmp\com_civicrm to C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\joomla\tmp\

and i tried installing civi again and it worked out successfully 🙂 this is how civiCRM main page looks in joomla
