Note: At the time of writing the latest stable version of Joomla! was Joomla_3-7.4-Stable-Full_Package. However, while trying to install that version I run into problems. The installation got stuck in the first step. It seemed that it was a bug that many people had faced and based on the this discussion on github it will be fixed for the next version. Until then I recommed installing 3.7.3 as done above and updating the software right after the process. The previous full packages of Joomla! can be found at https://downloads.joomla.org/cms.
