Server Requirements:
Any issues involving the installation of this software are always tied to server settings or the server does not meet the requirements listed below. Many hosting companies continue to restrict accounts in an effort to reduce customer service. It is highly recommended you check your server settings prior to attempting an installation. Our technical department is willing to assist on any installation questions you may have, but we do charge 30.00 USD /hour for issues that are not associated with the software and are deemed to be server-setting issues. If you are not sure if your server supports the below requirements, take the time to send in a request to your hosting company to verify prior to installation.Required

MySQL 3.2 and above
Apache Web Server (http, https)
90 MB of free disk space

After successful installation you will need to install the modules found in the "modules" folder like you do with any other joomla module.

According to your template module positions you will have to choose the right position  for each module to be displayed.
