Have you thought about just using IIS and installing the PHP and MySQL (or MariaDB) components?

Hi Jane!

Hope you’re doing well. Saw that you’re struggling with some issue in Moodle; we, the fellow Moodlers are always here to extend a helping hand.

Coming straight to your problem: May I please know the OS you’re using.? In case  you’re  using windows, I’d like to suggest you to use WAMP server since its easy and user friendly.

I should also mention :

MAMP is for MAC OS and XAMP is mainly for Linux

If you wish to go for XAMP server, please visit  the  links given below:

 Moodle Installation Using XAMP

For MAC OS, you have to download the MAC version of Moodle

I hope this’ll solve your issue. We’re happy to help you. Please get back to us for further query.

Warm Regards
