Hi all

In the running discussions in this forum, I came across the multitude of documention on installing Moodle: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Category:Installation, most of them are for Debian and various Ubuntu 'flavours', at various stages of development.

To aggravate the matters I decided to write another! No, even worse, started writing one. I didn't want to make it public until it is 'finished' but decided against after I received a message this morning asking exactly this question, how to install Moodle on Debian.

So here it is: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_Moodle_on_Debian_based_distributions.

As you can verify for yourself, the page is at an early stage of development. Please do post all the suggestions, any problems you encounter, etc. either in this thread or in the "Talk" page of the document.

@Wiki administrators
The page is physically in the /22/ Wiki, becuase I wanted to keep it "version free" (the page is valid for all the versions from 1.6 to 2.2). But please, please don't clone it! (I will immediately stop working on it, if you do! sad )

But moving it to /23/ is OK, once 2.3 becomes the standard. Then pl. delete the /22/ version.

This is about http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_Moodle_on_Debian_based_distributions.

The article is 60% finished.

Some ToDos:
- lighttpd missing

- PostgreSQL missing

- PHP modules required for Moodle 2.1, 2.2

- phpMyAdmin

- pgAdmin

- Download via Git

- Footnotes not working. See http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=197006.

- Generally more explanation text. I tend to explain through the command line!
wink

Anybody willing to get one's hands dirty, just go ahead and edit in the wiki itself or comments its "Talk" page!

Great addition, as other pages were a bit short or incomplete.
