Installation, domain and server

Re: Installation, domain and server


mmmhh... Not sure what you want?  If you have a physical server for hosting Moodle, it will have nothing to do with your hosting company. A sub-domain would still be on THEIR servers and NOT YOUR server.

If you want to host a Moodle Server yourself you will need:

1) A fast internet connection with a fixed IP address.

2) A registered domain name for the above IP address.

3) Server software properly configured - e.g. Linux with Apache, MYSQL, PHP etc

4) Time to check that no one attacks or hacks your server.

Unless you have a lot of technical knowledge, it's probably not a good idea. However if you know Linux well, it is not so difficult.

Hope that helps
