TYPO3 CMS - Introduction distribution
Use "admin" and "password" as credentials
This is an example of a typical TYPO3 installation that bundles an XHTML template, the TYPO3 source and some well-known extensions. Download this if you want to try out TYPO3 and play around with it, or just to get a basic site with a predefined template up and running (beware though that the Introduction distribution uses the CC BY-NC-ND licence and therefore must not be used for business or commercial purposes). To install, you need a webserver on your local machine or a hosted webserver. Unzip the package, create a Virtual Host pointing at the root of the directory, open the browser and go to the installation wizard.
There is a Forge project where issues and wishes can be reported. For instance If you would like to have your own distribution listed here demoing special features of a TYPO3 product, don't hesitate to open a ticket.
