Administering Joomla

One of the great benefits of using Joomla is the ease of site management that the CMS offers. Nearly all site administration functions are available through the web browser interface, making it possible to alter content and system configuration from anywhere you have access to the Web. When maintenance is required outside of the Administrator interface, it can usually be handled by industry standard MySQL tools. The Joomla Administrator interface is structured so that each area of responsibility has a separate manager screen. For example, the Template Manager provides the inter- face for the configuration of all templates, while the User Manager is used to set up and administer user accounts. The Joomla managers can be divided into roughly three cate- gories: presentation administration, content administration, and system administration.
