Override the Security check for installation
 

Hi there,

i **KNOW** this is not advisable but is it possible to install Moodle with the Moodledata folder in a web accessible location?  The installation checks and won't allow it but can this be overridden?


Cheers


Dave

You can add a .htaccess file that restricts the access to those directories. It's in the installation instructions. I've never had to try it but that should be enough to 'pass' the security check.

Having said that, I wouldn't be happy at having a setup that forced me to do something like this. I know that some very nasty hosting forces everything to be web accessible but, if that's your problem, I would take my business somewhere else.
