Module "resource" (2004073000) could not be installed. It requires a newer version of Moodle (currently you are using 2004072901, you need 2004073000).
The resource mod requires a newer version than exists! The install went OK except for the resource module error. If anyone could shed light on this I would appreciate it.
Thanks a lot for your feedback Martin, and I will try to remember to do that in the future.
I had the same problem as Tim Allen today but cured it with Martin's advice here
It seems to be a fairly common and easily fixable problem, occuring a few times on the forums, with the highly unstable development version (which appears to be very stable actually)
