I downloaded Moodle 2.7 in winzip form and now it won't let me install. I am new and have no clue what to do other than to say that Moodle SUCKS!
Sounds like you want Moodle to behave like any other free software such as Libreoffice, Blender, Linux, Gimp. But it doesn't work that way. You first of all need a web address for where you can provide courses, and where students can find you to enrol with your courses.
