Installation It's your Choice

Please note: The Main Difference between a Quickstart and a Piece-by-Piece Installation is the following: A Quickstart is easy to use, it contains a Joomla Version and all Extensions are installed and pre configurated! A Piece-by-Piece Installation means you first must install Joomla, then the Theme and configurate it, then the Components and configurate it, then the Modules and configurate it, the the Plugins and configurate it and then creating the whole pages, menus, basic settings and so on! So we recommend you to use the easy Way.

The Easy Way (strongly recommended)
The Long and Hard Way (NOT recommended)
