<?PHP // $Id: version.php,v 3.1.9 2007/12/12 /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// /// Code fragment to define the version of certificate /// This fragment is called by moodle_needs_upgrading() and /admin/index.php /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// $module->version = 2009080900; // The current module version (Date: YYYYMMDDXX) $module->requires = 2007101506; // Requires this Moodle versionYes I am not well educated on moodle - Does this mean I need to use an earlier version?
No I think something may be amiss in your moodle version build number. GO to admin> notifications> and as you are runniing 1.97 it should be something like 1.9.7+ (Build: 20091202)
f the build number does not start with 2009 0r 2010 that is the problem.
