Using slash arguments
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Using slash arguments.
Enabling slash arguments
Slash arguments must be enabled on your web server, as described in:
Error when uploading a file
If you obtain a 'File not found' error when uploading a file, it indicates that slash arguments need to be enabled on your web server.
If your web server doesn't support slash arguments, its use in Moodle can be disabled by un-ticking the checkbox 'Use slash arguments' in Administration > Site administration > Server > HTTP.
Warning: Disabling the use of slash arguments will result in SCORM packages and multiple-file resources not working and slash arguments warnings being displayed!
Slash arguments environment check
Note: The use of slash arguments will be required in future versions of Moodle.
If your web server doesn't support slash arguments, you will in future need to change to a web server which does. (It will no longer be possible to disable the use of slash arguments.)
In the meantime, Administration > Site administration > Server > Environment reports if the slash argument setting needs to be checked i.e. if it is detected that 'Use slash arguments' is disabled in Administration > Site administration > Server > HTTP. Thus, the check is a warning of the future requirement.
