Installing ccInvoices

Installation of ccInvoices is rather easy, and the same as most Joomla! extensions.

  1. Download the extension from the ccInvoices downloads on our website
  2. Login to your Joomla! website administrator
  3. Go to Extensions > Extensions Manager

Method one:

  1. Select browse, in the "Upload Package File" section
  2. Find and select the ccInvoices .zip file on your computer
  3. Click on "Upload file & Install"
  4. ccInvoices should now be installed and visible under Components > ccInvoices

If you have problems installing ccInvoices, please check how upload_max_filesize is set. Some hoster set this value to 2MB, (which is low for Joomla! extensions), and ccInvoices 1.9.x is larger then 2MB. You can check this in System > System information > PHP information, search for "upload_max_filesize". If it is 2MB or lower ask you hoster to increase this to 5MB. Sometimes you can change it yourself, please refer to the hoster do cumentation. If you can not change this, try installing via method 2.

Method two:

If you are in a hurry and do not want to wait for your hoster, you can install ccInvoices via the "Install from URL" method. 

  1. First you need to upload the extension zip file (for example: via FTP to your website root.
  2. Enter the location of that file in the "Install URL" field like this:
  3. Click install.
  4. If that does not work or your are having any issues, please contact us by creating a ticket. 


Uninstalling ccInvoices

If, for whatever reason, you want to uninstall ccInvoices, it can be easily done by following the below steps.

  1. Login to your Joomla! website administrator
  2. Go to Extensions > Extensions Manager > Manage
  3. Find ccInvoices and check the checkbox
  4. Click "Uninstall" in the top right
  5. ccInvoices is now uninstalled

Please note that some files and tables in the database are not removed by the uninstall, so you can install ccInvoices again later, without losing that data.
