Traditionally Joomla could only be deployed on a web server. But if you want to run Joomla locally for testing or any other reason, the JumpBox for Joomla provides you with the ability to run it locally with a pre-built and pre-configured virtual application. You can conveniently deploy Joomal on Windows, Mac, or Linux using virtualization tools such as VMware. To deploy Joomla locally using VMware or Parallels, first download Jumpbox for Joomla. Similarly, if you’re running VirtualBox, download the OVF file available at http://download.jumpbox.com. In VMware Player, simply extract the ZIP file for the JumpBox and double-click the VMX or PVS files subsequently. From here on setting up Joomla is the same process as on a web server.
