Installing Moodle from Git repository
This page is a work in progress
Linux/Unix command line
These instructions should be very similar on Windows.
Move to the directory where you wish to install Moodle. Moodle will go in ./moodle, relative to this directory
Clone the offical Moodle repository via git
git clone git://git.moodle.org/moodle.git
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 https://github.com/moodle/moodle.git
