Joomla 3.0 is finally out! As usual, I’m testing it on our servers making sure that it works flawlessly for all SiteGround folks that use this great piece of open source software.

I started installing Joomla 3.0 and writing this post simultaneously. I’ve just written an intro paragraph on how easy and painless the installation process is, when a nasty Internal Server Error screen appeared – right after I unpacked the official installation package.
