Just follow the instructions here: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_Moodle

If you get stuck at any point come back and ask again wink

I installed moodle, but when I'm trying to go to http://yourwebserver.com/moodle in my case "http://localhost/moodle" it doesn't works. I don't know what's wrong. I tried many times, but it always is the same.

This is the error:

" Error: Database connection failed.

It is possible that the database is overloaded or otherwise not running properly.

The site administrator should also check that the database details have been correctly specified in config.php"

Can you connect to your MySQL database outside of Moodle?

Try making the following php file (editing log on details to match your MySQL database) and see if it can connect to your database...

<?php
$dbconnect = @mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'mypassword');
if (!$dbconnect) {
echo '<p>Unable to connect to the database server!</p>' ;
exit();
} else {
echo '<p>Successfully connected to the database server!</p>';
}
?>

Are you sure you are using the correct username and password to connect to MySQL?
