You do not need to install Joomla on your PC for testing patches.

For the PBF we will prepare some installations ready to use. You will get a list of ready-to-use-installations

    1. Choose one of the Applications from the list.
    2. Sign in to the Joomla backend
      Username: is the install number.
      Password: is the install number.
      If you cannot log in, it's because someone else has reserved this number, so choose another application
    3. Change Joomla backend password to make sure that no other tester can use your application.
