RocketLauncher Instructions

We always recommend installing a RocketLauncher first to trial and understand the template more effectively. It must be installed as new, and not over an existing Joomla install.

Step 1 - Upload

  • Download the RocketLauncher
  • Unzip the file
  • Upload the created folder to your server

Note: You can upload all the files via FTP, or use cPanel or SSH to upload the zip and unzip directly onto the server. Enquire with your hosting provider.

Step 2 - Installation


  • Apache 2.x or Microsoft IIS 7
  • PHP 5.3.x
  • MySQL 5.0.4 or higher
  • Joomla! 2.5.x / 3.x.x
  • Gantry Framework
  • RokNavMenu Module


RocketLauncher is a customized Joomla install, that installs a replica of the demo.

Note: All sample content images will be replaced with blank versions in the RocketLauncher.
