We recommended using the newest stable release of Joomla version.
If you have already downloaded the extension, unzip it first to a temporary directory. You will see two packages:
Both packages need to be installed but be sure to install com_jomcomdev.zip first
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.
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 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.
Remember to install both packages.

Because JomDirectory is actually quite an advanced component, the size of the installer exceeds 2mb which is the default configuration that is set by most hosting companies. If you have problems installing, you might want to try to contact your hosting provider.
If your hosting provider allows you to override the php settings by adding a php.ini file in your document root, containing the following block of code.
