Installing and Configuring Joomla! 1.5

by Santonu Kumar Dhar | September 2010 | Joomla! Open Source

Joomla! has earned a reputation of being one of the most powerful CMS programs around, as its core team emerged from another popular open source Content Management System (CMS) program called Mambo. Joomla! was downloaded more than 2.5 million times within the first year of its release. It has over 200,000 community users and contributors. Although Joomla! is so popular, building jobsites with Joomla! is a new concept.

To build a jobsite, you need to use a jobs and recruitment extension (such as Jobs!, Jobline!, or JS Jobs) in your Joomla! website. We will use the Jobs! extension because it provides all of the functionalities that a professional jobsite should have. It provides graphical user interface for administrator, employer, and jobseeker. Before we start how to develop a jobsite with Joomla!, we need to install and configure Joomla! 1.5 and Jobs! extension along with all of its modules.

This article by Santonu Kumar Dhar, author of the book Building job sites with Joomla!, explains:

  • Prerequisites for installation of Joomla! 1.5 and Jobs!
  • Setting up a local server environment
  • Uploading installation packages and files to server
  • Creating database and user for the database
  • Installing and configuring Joomla! 1.5

Installing and Configuring Drupal Commerce

by Richard Carter | July 2013 | Cookbooks Drupal e-Commerce Open Source

Drupal Commerce (http://www.drupalcommerce.org) is a collection of modules that extend the Drupal content management system to support an e-commerce-style store.

Drupal Commerce provides a much more stripped back alternative to the Ubercart module (http://www.ubercart.org), which became the most popular e-commerce package for Drupal 6. Ryan Szrama was the lead developer on the UberCart project before moving to work on the Drupal Commerce framework. As a relatively new project, Drupal Commerce is only supported from Drupal 7 onwards.

In particular, an obvious initial difference between Ubercart and Drupal Commerce is that the latter does not come with shipping or payment gateways pre-installed. It is left to the site builder to install the modules they want to use to fulfill these features. As such, Drupal Commerce is presented as more of a framework than Ubercart, which is designed to be more functional out of the box.

This article by Richard Carter, the author of Building E-commerce Sites with Drupal Commerce Cookbook,will guide you through the basic configuration your Drupal Commerce store may need to function, from installation to checkout, and currency configuration options.

The remainder of the recipes in this book assume that you have used the Drupal Commerce Kickstart installation profile for Drupal, though you should be able to follow all recipes regardless of this.

In this article we will cover the following topics:

  • Installing Drupal Commerce to an existing Drupal 7 website

  • Installing Drupal Commerce with Commerce Kickstart 2

  • Creating your first basic product

  • Configuring the checkout in Drupal Commerce

  • Configuring the currency in Drupal Commerce

  • Changing your store's logo file

  • Changing your store's favicon (favorites icon)

  • Adding social media icons on product pages

Installing Activiti

by Dr. Zakir Laliwala Irshad Mansuri | March 2014 | Beginner's Guides Open Source

This article by, Dr. Zakir Laliwala and Irshad Mansuri, the authors of Activiti 5.x Business Process Management Beginner's Guide, explains how to install Solr. The business process is important for any organization, but managing it is of equal importance. Business requirements frequently change for an organization. To change, manage, and understand the current business process is very hard without Business Process Management (BPM), where the execution of each system depends on the business process. For developers, implementing a business process without following any standards leads to complexity. To explain a business process to a non-technical person without any graphics leads to misunderstanding. In such situations, Activiti comes to the rescue, as it is one of the best BPM frameworks for implementing business processes in your organization. Activiti provides a platform to create a business process on a canvas, build it, and execute it on the fly. It is open source, written in Java, and distributed under the Apache V2 license.

To implement a business process using Activiti, you first have to understand the skeleton of Activiti BPM. In this article, we will show you how to download and install Activiti.

In this article, we will cover the following topics:

  • Overview of Activiti BPM
  • Downloading Activiti BPM
  • Installing the Activiti framework
  • Building your first business process

By the end of this article, you will be able to install and access the Activiti framework and implement your own business process.

So, let's take a tour of Activiti, set it up, and implement a business process.
