Installing DMC Firewall - Install from Directory

Another way to install DMC Firewall is by using Joomla's 'Install from Directory' option. In order to do this you will need to perform the following tasks:

  1. Unpack the contents of the '.zip' folder which you downloaded to you hard drive
  2. Using FTP - upload the contents of the extracted zip to your 'tmp/' folder (an example would be tmp/dmcfirewall/(files and folders here))
  3. Go to 'Extensions -> Extension Manager -> Install from Directory'
  4. Within the 'Install Directory' text field enter '/dmcfirewall' (it should be pre-populated with the path to your 'tmp' directory to start with)
  5. Click on the 'Install' button and Joomla will take care of the rest

Once you have completed the above steps - DMC Firewall will be accessible from your 'Components' menu, titled 'DMC Firewall'
