I'm about to upgrade my 2.5 version to 2.7. My server is with hostgator. I've been following the directions on the Upgrading page in moodle docs. I've backed everything up, made sure that my server runs php 5.5 and am ready to go. As I go through the steps something confuses me.
Under the heading "Standard Install" there is a heading called "linux", with instructions including something about cron.
I'm doing a standard install. Do i just ignore this heading? In terms of the cron job, when i upgrade, won't that be adjusted automatically? Do I need to reconfigure that?
Also, the directions say:
"Finishing the upgrade
The last step is to trigger the upgrade processes within Moodle.
To do this just go to Administration > Site administration > Notifications.
Moodle will automatically detect the new version and perform all the SQL database or file system upgrades that are necessary. If there is anything it can't do itself (very rare) then you will see messages telling you what you need to do."
If I'm moving my old moodle to a new directory, how can I log into that when i've changed the location (I access my current install with "mysitename/moodle" I'm a little confused here.
Can someone help me?
