    Ease of installing Moodle

    Question please for all you network managers and Moodle experts: How easy would it be for someone competent in ICT and the ftp process to install a Moodle? I run several websites, have installed wordpress blogs and 'Singapore' opensource galleries myself - and have upgraded them - no issues there -but the only Moodles I have dealt with have been either done for me by my webhosts or pre-installed by CLEO. Iwant to install a Moodle 1.9 in a subdirectory of one of my sites so I can be prepared for when CLEO upgrade our school one which I am admin in. I want to do it myself because....well, I want to know how to do it myself! It says on moodle dot org it can be done in minutes and I have briefly glanced at the bullet points - seems manageable - will I be able to do it? Thanks

    Why not install one of the XAMPP Windows packages? 15 minutes and everything is up and running. I have it running on my laptop to investigate new features without having to compromise a live system.

    mighty.grey.eagle's idea is probably the best if you want to mess about, but just as a side note, I did a full install of Moodle 1.9 this morning, with lots of interruptions, but at a rough guess it took me a lot less than an hour.

    thanks

    Ok will give it a go - I prefer to do it online as I've plenty of spare space knocking around and it is more authentic then.
