We recommended using the newest stable release of Joomla version.

Install on domain or subdomain instead of the directory  WRONG  CORRECT 


If you already downloaded the extension, unzip it first to some temporary directory. You will see two packages:

- (main framework)

- (jomdirectory extension)

Both packages needs to be installed.

The easiest way to install the extensions is by using the Upload Package File option. Just click on the Choose File button, and locate the extension.

Once you've selected the correct file, click Upload File and Install. Joomla will then automatically extract and install the extension for you.

Installing from Directory

From time to time you may find that the Upload Package File option is having a bad day (there's always a reason). If you find yourself in this position, you can either troubleshoot and fix the problem, or you can use the other option Joomla provides to install an extension: Install From Directory. To make use of this option, you'll need FTP access, or another file access and transfer protocol. Your hosting provider will be able to give you the information you need in order to gain FTP access to your web files. Once you have FTP access, you'll need to upload the zipped extension into the public directory of your Joomla website (generally called public_html).

From here, just provide Joomla with the file location of the extension under Install From Directory, and again Joomla will extract and install the extension for you.

.htaccess file

Installer, will do that for you, however if not, please do the following:

In order for the image library to work correctly .htaccess file needs to be modified. These lines have to be inserted at the end of the file.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} \^/i
RewriteRule \^i/.*/(\[0-9a-z\]{2})(\[0-9a-z\]{2})\[0-9a-z\]{4}/(.*)$ /cache/com_jomdirectory/$1/$2/$3 \[NC,L\]
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} \!-f
RewriteRule \^cache/com_jomdirectory/.*$ index\.php?option=com_jomdirectory&format=raw&task=ajax\.image \[NC,L\]


Please check following guide if you encounter any errors when installing:
