Joomla Discussion Videos

The Joomla 3.x File System layout.

In this episode I discuss the file system layout that Joomla uses.  Although not mandatory, knowing how Joomla uses the file system when it runs make writing extensions a little more clear.  Also I discuss the three applications that Joomla is packaged with.  The "site", "administrator" and "install" applications.
