I want to use Advance Polls and/or Joomla on my website so my understanding is I have to install the software and create databases. When I go to Goodies > One Click Installs, it says to select where I want my software installed but to make sure there are no files there currently. But I already have my website up and running. So I guess I should put the new software in a new folder on my website. Is it OK to just select the domain I want the new software to work on and type a new folder name in the next slot? Will it automatically create the new folder? Will it leave all the stuff that’s already there alone?
I guess I have to create a new database as well. There are three DBs already on one of my domains. (As you can probably surmise, someone else created them for me.) To create a new DB, does it matter what I name it? What is the Hostname that they are asking me to fill in (the default is “mysql”)? What is the First User they are asking me to select? There is currently a dropdown list of three names which are the names of the three databases already created for my other domain.
I know these are pretty basic questions but that’s why I put them in the Beginner’s forum. Thanks for your help.
