    Moodle Installation Problems

    Hi all,
    Sorry this could be a long one...

    I have been asked by the network manager to install Moodle for the school as a Trainee Task. This is to be done on my current Windows XP Pro SP2 machine and should have the newest versions of the required software available.

    So far i have installed Apache v2.2, PHP v5.2 and MySQL v5.0.27

    When i go to install Moodle though i get the same error every time which is... or you can see the attacthment

    PHP version
    Pass

    Session Auto Start
    Pass

    Magic Quotes Run Time
    Pass

    Insecure Handling of Globals
    Pass

    Safe Mode
    Pass

    File Uploads
    Pass

    GD version
    Caution
    The GD library should be present to process and create images

    Memory Limit
    Caution
    The PHP memory limit is set quite low ... you may run into problems later.


    Now i have changed all of the following in the php.ini file as of checking the installation manual found at http://docs.moodle.org/en/Install

    the correct extension:- extension_dir = c:\php\ext
    un-commented the GD extension :- [i]extension = php_gd2.dll[i]
    and incresed the memory limit from 8mb to 16mb:- [i]memory_limit = 16M[i]

    Ok, I don't know then. I'm not familar with Apache/PHP on Win32.

    In any case, those are not errors. They are simply warnings. You can carry on with the installation despite those issues.

    Save yourself a lot of agro, and get an old PC and install a version of *nix on it.

    Re: Moodle Installation Problems

    I've always used EasyPHP for this on Windows (www.easyphp.org). It's easy to set up (one executable) and I've never had any issues. It doesn't come with the most recent versions of everything though.

    Apache 1.3.33
    PHP 4.3.10
    MySQL 4.1.9
    PHPMyAdmin 2.6.1

    I guess you could get it working with those and upgrade components as required.

    Just go to the Moodle site and download the XAMPP version. All nicely packaged together an never fails - at least not for me.

    Surely this is cheating?

    I'd demote him to tea making duties for the next 2 weeks.
