I never had any problems installing or running Moodle 1.8 through 1.9+, however, my setup seems to be inadequate for the installation process required with Moodle 2.1+.
- max_execution_time = 0
- max_input_time = -1
- memory_limit = 1024M
- post_max_size = 512M
- upload_max_filesize = 512M
- default_socket_timeout = 600
These settings have served me well with Moodle 1.9+. However, upon installing Moodle 2.1+ (from scratch) it hangs on /admin/index.php?agreelicense=1&confirmrelease=1&lang=en. For a while the browser (Firefox 5/Linux) keeps loading but all that's displayed is "Installation" and "System". But after a few minutes it stops loading. However, the httpd2-prefork/mysqld tasks seem to continue running on the server. I imagine this is not how things are supposed to be.
Could anyone please point me to what I may be doing wrong.
