== Command line (all platforms) ==
Using the cd command, move to the directory that you wish to install Moodle inside. The Moodle code will be placed in a subdirectory of the directory you're currently in. For example, if you are in /tmp when you run the command, Moodle will be installed in /tmp/moodle.
Clone the offical Moodle repository via git, taking the 2.0 stable branch, and placing it into a subdirectory called moodle.
git clone -b MOODLE_20_STABLE git://git.moodle.org/moodle.git moodle
If you have firewall issues with the git protocol, the above may not work, in which case you can try cloning the official github repository via http
git clone -b MOODLE_20_STABLE https://github.com/moodle/moodle.git moodle
Whichever command works it should display a result like the following. Installing will probably take around ten minutes.

Move in to the new moodle directory that you just created.
cd moodle
From here, you can edit config.php and install as per the [[Installing_Moodle#Setting-up_your_web_server|Installation Instructions]]
Upgrading to the latest Moodle 2.0 version is now one simple command. Change into the moodle directory and then run:
git pull origin MOODLE_20_STABLE
== Installing other versions ==
You can install another version by replacing MOODLE_20_STABLE with e.g. MOODLE_19_STABLE. If you want the latest unfinished development version, use 'master' (note lower-case) instead of MOODLE_20_STABLE.
