This guide is designed for administrators who have installed Moodle before and need a quick recap to jog their memory. It could also be useful for those administrators who wish to have an overview of the installation procedure before they start with our more detailed installation guide.

Preparation

  • Install PHP and required extensions, a supported database such as MySQL and a webserver on the target computer
  • Create a blank database using UTF-8 encoding (call it moodle if you like) and create a database user with the appropriate permissions
  • Create a data directory (call it moodledata if you wish) outside of the webserver.
  • Ensure the webserver is the owner of the data folder and give the owner read, write and execute permissions
  • Download Moodle

Installation

  • Extract the files and place them in the documents folder on the webserver (or any subfolder of your webserver)
  • Go to http://yourserver/install.php or http://yourserver/subfolders/install.php to start the installation
  • Download the config.php file from your webserver and place in the moodle root if prompted

Configuration

  • If you agree with the GPL license you will be allowed to continue
  • Give your site a name and description
  • Configure an admin account

One last thing

Once you have finished setting up moodle you need to set up cron.

That's it! Well done :-)
