I have up loading limeservey to root directory but stuck after that.

I jushost is where my site is stored and i am using joomla 3.2

Hmmm, usually the installation is quite simple, especially when you already know how to install other web applications.

Where are you stuck?

In reality you just need to check if your server matches the requirements and if this is the case upload all files on your server.

Then you navigate to the place where the files are uploaded to. If you don't put it into a subfolder, but directly in the root it could be that you run into trouble with Joomla.

From there on the installation process should start and you just follow the steps, fairly straight forward.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Hi There thanks for getting back to me.

I. I have uploaded limesurvey to in binary to the root directory call /limesurvey using filzilla
2. all of the files are as they were unzipped, so there is no change there.
3. went to url mydomain.com/limesurvey/admin/

I get the following error

Not Found

The requested URL /limesurvey/admin was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Apache Server at www.mydomain.com Port 80


From there I don't know what to do, because nothing happens

4. I have looks in my phpadmin but I could not see the data base

So I don't know where to go from here

regards

Well, this means that you did something wrong while uploading I guess. There is no file to be found.

Check again with your FTP program where you put the limesurvey folder, because the 404 is coming up. This means there is no file there.

Sometimes it is a simple typo... so check for typos as well.

Now it is clear: you have put it in the actual root folder of the server and not into the "web root".

All webfiles need to go into the "public_html" folder (or "www", which is actually just a link to the public_html folder).

I am sure you'll find your joomla installation in there as well!

Please enter the database settings you want to use for LimeSurvey:

Please fix the following input errors:

Connection with database failed. Please check database location, user name and password and try again.

did you create a database, a database user and password for the user?

I have seen that you are using Cpanel, so go there and create the database, if not done so yet.

If you have created a database already, then you need to check if your database location (probably localhost), user name and password were corret, just as the error message says.

Make also sure the database user has all the rights to the respective database...
