Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.5. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Windows installation.
If you are running a small (less than 30 users) Moodle server or just want to test Moodle on your Windows XP PC, pre-built packages are available for you to use. Here are links to pages containing step-by-step instructions for installing Moodle using install packages:
- Complete install packages for most Windows versions
- This section has a quick way to install a complete package on a Windows XP machine
- Installation guide for Windows using XAMPP in case you want to retrofit
For medium to large installations, it is best practice to install Moodle on your server manually. In addition to PHP, you require either IIS or Apache, and MSSQL (only in Moodle 1.7 or later) or MySQL.
