im using cPanel with Linux centOS.
is there any (EASY ) documentation to install moodle on it?
best regards =)
Just upload the file to your wwwroot or subdirectory, use the wizard in cpanel to setup a new mysql database (taking note of the details) & then just go to the web address and go through the moodle install wizard to set up your config.php.
As far as documentation goes I’m not sure if there is any specifically for Cpanel, but just use the generic documentation as a basic guide - this is not the easiest to follow, but give it a try.
I would only add
- when you create the database, make sure its default character set is utf-8, and
- I don't know if this qualifies as documentation, but there are video tutorials for installing Moodle with cPanel, such as http://otaru-jc.ac.jp/hagley/settingupmoodleonhostingwithcpanel.swf
Such a shame. It was a really good tutorial. It seems the site has either been taken over or is being renovated. When you go to the server root (http://otaru-jc.ac.jp/) it just says it's under construction. There's still a link to it on the Moodle doc page on installation (http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_Moodle).
There used to be several places you could watch Jeff Wood's video on the same subject, but most are no longer available either. You can still find it at
http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=45c51ece506fd614ab1eab3e9fa335caa2ad85fd66c033a1, but you have to jump through a couple of hoops to get to the actual tutorial video.
Also, this forum post by Mary Parke offers to tell you how to get to her video if you e-mail her: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=87038#p384446
I would like to thank you for posting the link to the video tutorial it helped me a great deal when installing moodle using the CPanel.
And a million thanks to Eric Hagley for creating the tutorial.
