It’s always a good idea to read the extension’s documentations before you install it. Most extensions have the same installation process:
1.First download the extension to your local machine as a zip file package.
2.Login to your Joomla’s backend with your admin user and go to Extensions -> Install/Uninstall.
3.Select Browse and find your extension package on your computer and click Upload file and Install.
4.Some extensions may have further instructions at the time of installation.
5.When you get a confirmation that your extension is installed make sure you enable it so it starts working.
You sometimes need to unzip the file before installing it. If your extensions doesn’t install and you get an error that the file is not the right format, try to unzip the file before installing the files individually.
Sometimes automated installation doesn’t work, especially on very large extensions that exceed the maximum uploading size allowed by your host. Also if there’s a restriction of your hosting.
For such cases use a manual installation. To install extensions manually in Joomla, you first need to unzip the files and then transfer them using FTP to a folder of the type of extension in your install directory. Now use the installer and select ‘install from directory’ and indicate the folder name with the oath from the root of your file system.

 When using Joomla you can easily extend the funtionality of your website by adding Joomla extensions. There many types of Joomla extensions you can add to your Joomlasite such as components, modules, plugins, which allow you to change the looks and/or functionality of your website. In Joomla 1.5 all extensions are installed in the same way.
