I have been trying for days now to install a clean install of 2.4.1 on a shared server. On the same server I am running several seperate upgraded moodle installations successfully. After trying everything my conclusion is that the installation process gets suspended before it is complete, possibly when creating the database.
Looking at the forum messages, various solutions are offered to "solve" the symptoms, but not the cause. So, what it implies is that you manually start fixing the database. Here are the first three messages, fix one and the next will appear.
Could not find a top-level course!
Config table does not contain version, can not continue, sorry.
Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: block_manager has not yet loaded the blocks, to it is too soon to request the information you asked for.
Looking at older installations, the config table has about 30 fields. If I go to the "new" config table, its got 3, and not even a version field. Same goes for other tables. Therefor my assumption that the DB installation process gets interrupted.
I am installing version 2012120301.02, release 2.4.1+ (Build: 20130118), on a Linux server running
Is there a solution to this? Any help will be appreciated.
