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, download and install GNU aspell together with at least one dictionary and then use the search facility in Explorer to find the aspell.exe file. The path should look like:

c:\program files\aspell\bin\aspell.exe

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.exe
