    Moodle

    I have modle install on a FreeBSD environment. I would like all the resources to be stored on our Windows based storage server is there a way of doing this either in the settings/config file/re-writing php code?

    Moodle has a config value for where to store the data. $CFG->dataroot in config.php Just mount the windows share on the BSD box then point the dataroot value to the mountpoint.

    Probably easier to mount the windows share in samba as a subdirectory of your moodle install, but you might get problems re-mounting if the connection is lost.

    Re: Moodle

    Right having setup another forum question just to deal with the Samba file mount I am now in a position to play. I've setup the moodledata folder to point at our shared area now I havea problem when you go to the upload/choose file the directory structure is blank even though all of the files and folders are there when looking at the mounted area using windows or linux, any ideas guys?

    Re: Moodle

    So really what I am looking for is moodle to not create new directories every time a new course gets created or at least always looks at the root of the moodledata folder instead when looking to choose or upload files is there anyway of doing this?

    Re: Moodle

    You can't mix things like that. You must give moodle it's own space to work in.

    Re: Moodle

    Moodle can have its own space but I need it to look at the share as the first point for choosing files. A school in Kent has managed to do this but I am still waiting to contact them about how this was achieved.
