How to install a BonusThemes QuickStart package (Joomla! 3.x)

In every Joomla template created by BonusThemes, we provide a "Quickstart" package.

The Quickstart installation is the fastest way to get your Joomla site up and running. It contains all the extensions, the modules, the menus, the settings, and the content of the template's demo page.

In this guide we will take you step by step through the quick and easy installation of your template's Quickstart package.

Step 1: Get the Quickstart Files

Go to your Membership Area, navigate to the template of your choice and download the Quickstart package .zip file.

Step 2: Upload the Quickstart files to your Server through FTP

To upload the Quickstart files using an FTP client, first extract the contents of the .zip file in a folder on your computer.

Then, using the FTP client, upload the files to an empty directory on your hosting where you want to install Joomla.

Depending on your upload speed, this process will take several minutes.

Make sure that all the files upload correctly. If one or more files fail to upload, the FTP client will mark the transfer as “failed”. You must re-upload any failed files.

If you don't have an FTP Client, we suggest you use Filezilla from

Step 3: Create a new database

Log in the control panel of your hosting account, and click on the MySQL Database Wizard icon.

Select your site's main language, and enter the site's name and description (up to 20 words).

You can also set the “Site Offline” to “yes”, so nobody else can access the front end before the site is completely ready.

To the fields on the write, enter an active email address. The username should be different than the database user's, and you should also create a different password. Make sure you 'll remember it, you will use it to log in the website's back end.

When you 're ready, click next.

Step 5: Connect to the database

On this page you will need the database info we suggested you wrote down on Step 3.

Add the database user's username, the password, and the database name in the respective fields.

The table prefix is useful if you are using the same database for more than one websites. If you only have one site on this database, leave the default value.


Step 6: Final Overview & Installation

This is the final page before the beginning of the installation.
