What is DJ-Classifieds quickstart

What is Quickstart?

The Quickstart is the backup (zipped copy) of the demo from our demo server. It comes with Joomla, and you install it like regular Joomla installation; after that, you get the same effect as on our demo pages. You do not need to configure everything from scratch; the installation is easy and will take a few minutes only. 

With DJ-Classifieds,  you can get 3  Quickstarts,  so you'll get access to the quickstarts installer packages as well.

How to get Quickstarts?

Quickstarts come in these plans:
  1. Unlimited - Everything we offer at DJ-Extensions with unlimited keys 
  2. DJ-Classifieds + Quickstarts 
  3. DJ-Classifieds + All Apps + Quickstarts 
If you're an active subscriber of DJ-Classifieds (any plan) and want to get access to the Quickstarts, contact us so we can arrange that (cost is $50).

How to install Quickstarts

Quickstart download

You need to be logged in to your DJ-Extensions account. Go to the downloads section. Click on " Quickstart " and download the package.


Upload the quickstart package to your server.  You can save time by uploading the compressed file and then uncompressing it on the server (if your server allows it). You can also uncompress the file on your desktop and then upload them using FTP.

Create a database.

Joomla requires a database for installation. If you are using a cPanel server, use the MySQL Database Wizard to set it up.

If your hosting provider does not use cPanel, you'll need to contact them and ask to create a new database.

Create your database name, database username, and database password. This information will be necessary later during the installation.


Type your site's address, and the installation process will start automatically. 

You'll need to select your language on the main configuration page, enter a site name and description, and set up your administrative details (such as username, password, and email address).  Choose " Next "to continue.


You need to enter your database information now. When finished, click " Next. "


Now you should mark the " sample_jm demo " option to install sample data.

You can also select " Yes " next to Email Configuration if you want to have a copy of the installation details emailed to you.  

Click the "Install" button to go further.
