    fastly? why? this is a volunteering forum but anyway here is the answer:
    Download the extension to your local machine as a zip file package.
    From the backend of your Joomla site (administration) select Extensions -> Install/Uninstall.
    Click the Browse button and select the extension package on your local machine.
    Click the Upload File & Install button.
    Some extensions may provide further instructions on installation.
    Note that modules and plugins must be enabled before they will work.

    There are some situations in which this procedure will not work.

    Sometimes you need to unzip the file locally prior to installing. If you get an error saying that the file is not in the correct format, the need to unzip is a common cause of this. After unzipping try installing the individual items. Note that the files you upload using the installer still need to be zipped.

    Sometimes you cannot use the automated installer. For example, very large extensions may exceed the maximum upload size allowed by your host.

    Also, If you see an error like this:

    Warning: is_dir() [function.is-dir]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/) is not within the allowed path(s): ...

    this is because of a restriction of your hosting account which leads Joomla! to try to check if the root directory exists. You will not be able to use the automated installer.

    Manual Installation

    First, unzip all of the files locally. Then transfer the files (using FTP) to a folder in the install directory (for example administrator/components/com_installer/components) for the type of extension you are installing. Then use the installer, but select "install from directory" indicating the correct folder name. This folder name should be an absolute path from the root of the filesystem.

    To install Joomla follow these easy steps
    Download VirtueMart from the official website.
    Make sure you download the complete package for Joomla 1.5.
    Go to your Joomla admin area > Extensions > Install/Uninstall.
    In the Upload Package File section click Browse and locate the VirtueMart archive.
    Click Upload File & Install to upload the file and complete the installation.
    Some components, including VirtueMart, need an additional step in order to complete their installation.
    In the case with VirtueMart you should choose whether to install sample data or not. Let's install it by clicking the Install SAMPLE DATA >> button.
    This will complete the VirtueMart installation and you will be able to manage it from the Components menu > VirtueMart.You will be able to install any other component/module/plugin/theme for Joomla 1.5 following the same steps.

    There are several different types of extensions that Joomla uses.
    Component: mini-application to render the main page body
    Module: renders small html blocks on any page
    Plugin: changes code behavior dynamically (renamed from mambot in Joomla! 1.0.x)
    Template: provides the site's design (layout, colours, images etc.)
    Language: provides language translation

    Before you can start your extension installation you must first decide what extension you would like to install. You may use the official Joomla! Extension Directory, get one from an external site, or you may even want to create your own: the choice is yours. Make sure that the extension you select is compatible to your current version of Joomla.
