Path to aspell

To use spell-checking within the HTML editor, you MUST have aspell 0.50 or later installed on your server, and you must specify the correct path to access the aspell binary. On Unix/Linux systems use the which program to determine the path:

[root@moodle ~]# which aspell
/usr/bin/aspell

In this example the path to enter is /usr/bin/aspell.

On a Windows system, use the search facility in Explorer to find the aspell.exe file. The path should look like:

c:\program files\aspell\bin\aspell

where the last aspell is the aspell.exe file. Some people have reported problems with a path like c:\program files\aspell, probably caused by the space before files. It can be best to install aspell in c:\aspell or use the 8.3 notation if you are installing in c:\program files so that the path looks like

c:\progra~1\aspell\bin\aspell
