I am making a moodle ecampus ufor a small school, and I chose to complete the site offline on a test server. I am running mac os x 10.3.8 & using MAMP (an all-in-one packaged test server for mac os: apache, mysql, and php) as the server.
I have now uploaded the site and am about to upload moodledata to the web. I have also dumped the MySQL database into a .sql file. I am a bit worried aboutthe SQL b/c the version on the live server is 4.0.18 and on the test server it is 4.0.20. What is/are the next step(s)? Thanks a lot for all your help.
I found success when I installed the same version fully on the live server, then copied the config.php file from test server to live server moodle folder. Finally, import sql using phpmyadmin on live server, go to sql tab, from memory you browse to the gzip or uncompressed sql file from test server and hit go! The database will have all records imported.
