Note: Copy the admin username and password on a notepad because you will need these login details to access the admin area of your Joomla Website.

10. Choose Language: You can choose the language of your Joomla. The default language of Joomla is English.

11. Advanced Options: Leave this as it is unless you want to change the database name or take an automated backup. Please note that taking frequent backups may take a lot of disk space.
