Phoca Install

Phoca Install is Joomla! CMS component. It is designed for developers or administrators. It is a base for creating advanced component which will have the following features:

  • Copy stored files from installation ZIP package (listed in installation XML file) to Joomla! site
  • Run SQL queries (listed in installation XML file) in Joomla! site.

If you as developer or administrator will create a file which will be a part of Joomla! site and you will need to distribute such file to users, you can modify this component to do this. The file will be stored in installation ZIP package and listed in installation XML file. Users will not have to copy such file or files to the Joomla! site, it will be copied automatically. The same with SQL queries. Users will not have to run SQL query or queries manually e.g. in phpMyAdmin. The SQL query will be executed automatically by this install component. Just install the basic Phoca Install component to see how it works.
