Installation and introduction of K2

In this recipe you will go through the steps to install and configure K2 in your Joomla! site.

Getting ready

You will want to download K2 from the following URL: http://getk2.org

Additionally, you may want to have a development site to install and learn this on rather than your production site.

How to do it...

  1. Installation of K2 works like any other Joomla! extension.
  2. Be sure and backup your files and database before beginning - this way you can easily roll back should something go wrong.
  3. Download K2.
  4. Log in to your Joomla! site as the Super Administrator.
  5. Click Extensions | Install / Uninstall.
  6. Browse, locate, and upload the K2 package.
  7. Install.

    Installation of K2 should be complete.
