    How to update Moodle in Server 2008

    Apparently there is a new version of Moodle that we need to update to. I have absolutely no idea how to do this - especiallly without breaking my current install. Moodle is installed on my new server 2008 (please don't tell me I should be using linux or not have it on the server, I know, but that is the way it is, I'm afraid).

    Can anyone help?

    I found a good guide to upgrading moodle on the moodle forums, but it was for linux, BUT the principals should be identical. How is it hosted on 2008? Is it on IIS or WAMP / XAMP?

    The update you run is the same on all installs. It only takes a few mins once your used to it. I did ours today actually.

    Download the newest version of moodle. Unzip it. All the files in there overwrite them with your current public moodle files - not the moodledata. Then go to your moodle site admin area /admin on your URL. Then moodle will take over and upgrade the database.

    Make sure you backup first

    Our install is on IIS.
    I'm not sure I know what you mean by: the moodle will take over - are you saying that once I overwrite the files and logon as admin, it will just do it?

    pretty much, it will display some text on the screen as to what it is doing. All it is doing is updating the database.
