Last Friday sat with Mary Evans while she helped me set up a WAMP server and a Github account and get me the latest 2.4 dev -which was great. However, it's one thing to nod appreciatively while someone else types the code into that black box and another to attempt to do it on your own...
My plan is to have a 2.3 and a 2.2 via GIT as well as the dev so I am always totally up to date. I thought I would try to set up a 2.3.1 today. I made the database on my Wamp server and I made a folder for this new Moodle to go into . Now I realise I have forgotten Mary's instructions for getting Moodle from Github...
It's an interesting experience because I have spent a hugely frustrating hour totally lost experimenting with various settings and made up bits of code - only then to go to http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Git_for_developers and also http://docs.moodle.org/en/Git_for_Administrators and still remain frustrated because I still can't understand the instructions. Now I know what it feels like for all those posters who come on here tearing their hair out as a last resort..
While I realise that if you are using GIT it is because you probably know what it is and how to use it already, I don't want to be beaten just because I am an "ordinary" user and not a Git Geek.
If someone could help with the following in idiot-proof one step at a time instructions then I promise that when I get more familiar with it all I will add it to the up-and-coming documentation on Git on Windows for dummies so that every regular Windows user can have the benefit
I want 2.3.1 via Git to go on my laptop in C>wamp>www>moodle23. I made that folder and I made the database. Where to next?
