You can as long as you have a few things in your favor:

 

-          If you intend to run a TLD in that subfolder (Joomla.com as opposed to Joomla.com/newsite) you have to have a way to point that TLD at the subfolder instead of the root. Of course you could always run it in a subfolder of your main domain (can’t use a TLD) as long as you have:

-          The ability to have more than one DB on your host since each Joomla install needs one. a host that doesn’t offer the first thing above may not offer the second as why would you need multiple databases when you only get space to host one site?

I am a Joomla newbie, so there may be practical reasons but why not simply use a subdirectory of your site for testing and just migrate to the root of your domain (or use a virtual host)?  In my limited experience, Joomla uses all relative links to <base href=”http://www.mydomain.com”> so moving the site is easy.  Hostgator supports both SSH and sFTP access which allow creation of http://www.mydomain.com/jdev25/ and http://www.mydomain.com/jdev30/

 

Is there some gotcha’ that I am missing here?

Thank you.  Yes, I have a file manager and I have installed 2.5 throught the scripts install but 2.5 is the only version that is indicated in the iPage Control Panel.  I will wait until that option becomes available in the Control Panel because that will indicate to me that they have a  3.something JOOMLA version available.  I thing I will wait until the first 3.0 stable release is available.

You don’t need to install 2.5 first…

And be sure you have PHP 5.3 enabled

 

You should have a File Manager in your CP.

Use that to upload the Joomla 3 package.

Then select and choose extract… It is so much faster…

 

=Crucial=  ( Then edit the .htaccess to enable PHP 5.3 )

You’ll probably have to rename the current .htaccess and rename the Joomla htaccess.txt to .htaccess then add the PHP 5.3 support

Create your SQL table then go to your site and install…

Correct, you can install the 2.5 that is probably what is in your webhost’s control panel, then upgrade to the STS v3.02 by changing the settings in your “Joomla Update” component to “short term release”. However, be extra sure you want to do this. that is not the current, stable Joomla release. If it for a dev site have at it, but it’s not recommended to use v3.x for production sites yet.

 

Alternatively, you can install Joomla the old fashioned way by downloading the install archive from Joomla.org then FTP-ing all the files to your web space and running the installer…..;)

There is an upgrade feature in Joomla that will allow you to upgrade from 2.5 to 3.0.  Instructions are in the upgrade section of the FAQ http://docs.joomla.org/Joomla_3.0_FAQ .  If your CP isn't setup with a link for the install, either install manually or upgrade.
