Moodle version 2.3.3+ Wamp server 2.2
Background info. My first attempt at installing moodle (locally) flopped. While following an on line tutorial it became evident that some functionality was missing (Missing Icons and pictures in the Installation forum refers). To solve this problem I deleted all the Moodle files and all the moodledata directory and its files. (At least I thought I had deleted all the relevant files). I did a complete new installation of Wamp and Moodle.
The new installation of moodle fixed the missing icons and pictures problem. However I discovered that some of the stuff I had added to the first install was still present - a dummy course structure and some fictitious users. I presume there is something stored in my computer that was not in the moodle or moodledata directories.
In parallel I did another new install on my laptop following the directions of Mary Cooch's wonderful video (loved the Lancashire Lass accent ) and it is working ok at least in the private files area.
Current problem. When I log in as the administrator I can access the privates files area and upload files without any problem. When I log in as a user I cannot access the private files area. I turned on the debugging feature and got this message:
Error code: storedfilecannotread
- line 175 of \lib\filestorage\stored_file.php: file_exception thrown
- line 806 of \lib\filestorage\stored_file.php: call to stored_file->update()
- line 394 of \lib\filelib.php: call to stored_file->set_source()
- line 255 of \lib\filelib.php: call to file_prepare_draft_area()
- line 57 of \user\files.php: call to file_prepare_standard_filemanager()
I looked in the C:\wamp\moodledata/filedir directory and there is no sub directory 6b.
That's the limit of my s/w capability.
As far as I can tell I have all the correct moodle permissions set.
What should I do next? If one answer would be to dump everything and start from fresh how can I be certain I have deleted EVERYTHING; I thought I had already done that.
I am anxious to get courses designed and online but need a stable working platform before I can really get going.
Any and all suggestions would be welcomed.
