I do not want to be persistent. I am just providing feedback with regard to your friendly recommendations and links, since I have to decide where and at what costs to install and/or to host our Moodle system. If the installation is not feasable without being a webadmin and an expert in how to (re-)configure the php environment of the server, it might be necessary to host the system commercially.
I have tried all of your recommendations:
I have run the info.php file with the result that my php.ini is only read when it is located in the same directory as the info.php file. Therefore, I have located the php.ini in the moodle root directory and for testing purposes in the moodle/admin directory.
I have tried all of the following syntaxes:extension=php_xmlrpc.so
None of them was succesfull. I still get the error message that the php-extension xmlrpc is missing.
You state that this extension is not required, but only recommended. I have serious problems with my current Moodle installation and since the only problem documented by the system consists in this missing php-extension, I thought that the problems in my current setting might disappear when I solve the "php-extension" problem.
My problems are:
- logos, icons, images are not displayed- I cannot access the website administration, since this appears as text, but not as a link in the left border
- If I open the direct URL (e.g. theme/index.php) of the respective item of the website administration, I can select for instance a theme (e.g. FormFactor), but the theme selected does only appear when I access the page with IE (version 8), but not when using FireFox (version 20.0.1) nor SeaMonkey (version 2.17).- When I login with IE, I receive the following error message in the status line of the browser (not within the moodle screen): 'M.util' ist Null oder kein Objekt ('M.util' is null or no object)
I try to solve these problems and the only problem documented by moodle itself is the missing php-extension xmlrpc. Therefore, I try to solve this problem hoping that once solved this problem, my serious problems might also be solved...
Thank you, Ken, and anybody else who may help with any recommendation.
