It would perhaps be really, really useful to novice users to provide a brief explanation of what is going on and why this is the case:
1. Enable Zend OpCache/Change Document Root - i.e. what and why are we changing the document root? 2. why are we copying the local repository (where the git folders are) again to /var/www/html/ 3. why are we changing sytem paths?
need not be too detailed, but the information here can be quite overwhelming when one doesn't know why they are doing it, and what they are actually doing. that's my only suggestion.
As mentioned in https://docs.moodle.org/30/en/Talk:Arguments_in_favour_of_PostgreSQL, it would be VERY useful if someone experienced in Ubuntu expands this page and includes the necessary steps for installing PostgreSQL. They were present in the Moodle 2.0 version of this page. German Valero (talk)
