Moodle 2.0

New features

Backup and restore has been completely rewritten for Moodle 2.0.

Backup of a course section
  • The backup process has been made a lot more efficient, making it possible to backup very large courses
  • Teachers can choose whether to include activities, blocks or filters in the backup
  • Users with appropriate permissions, such as administrators, can choose whether to include users, user role assignments, user files, comments, user completion details, course logs and grade history in the backup
  • Users with appropriate permissions, such as administrators, can create a backup with anonymized user information
  • Teachers can easily select the whole course or specific sections or activities to backup
  • Backup files have a distinctive .mbz extension to avoid confusion with .zip files

Backup and restore from 1.9 to 2.0

It is not currently possible to backup a course on a 1.9 site and restore it to a 2.0 site, however the functionality will be available in a forthcoming 2.0.x release. In the meantime, a workaround is to upgrade the 1.9 site to 2.0.
