Unable to finish instalation


When starting the moodle installation on the browser, after choosing the language,  Portuguese, we get this error message

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'lang_installer_exception' with message 'O componente não foi encontrado' in /var/www/moodle/lib/componentlib.class.php:786 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/moodle/lib/componentlib.class.php(641): lang_installer->install_language_pack('pt') #1 /var/www/moodle/install.php(359): lang_installer->run() #2 {main} thrown in /var/www/moodle/lib/componentlib.class.php on line 786

I've downloaded the language pack "" from here

I've copy the file to the "/var/moodledata/lang" directory and unzip it but I still get this error message.

Please help us!

Thanks in advance

I think it would be best if you complete the installation with the default language (english) and then, once moodle is running, install the requiered language pack.

I did exactly in this way, but later on I've got an error when tried to install a language pack.

Hi Miguel and Alexander,

You can try another solution. Generally, the error occurs when your computer network is half-connected, that means your computer is on a local network but not connects to the internet.So, you can be off line totally or connect to the internet to avoid this error. It indeed works but I don't know why.

Good luck!
