Re: Moodle 1.0
 
Moodle looks pretty nice as far as I can see from
outside, so I downloaded the brand-new tarball
and installed it according to instructions.
Everything went smoothly until it was finished
(successfully) creating all the MySQL tables, but
at the point where your online instructions say
it should stop and ask me to create the admin
account, it skips over it and goes to the
homepage. No admin account, no control, no
solution. I tried twice just to make sure I
hadn't missed something. I run Apache/PHP/MySQL
on Mandrake 8.1 Linux. Any suggestions? -- Jess

Were you already logged in as admin from an older beta installation, maybe? If so, make sure you log out before the new installation.

Nope, this was a virgin installation.

Strange - I've not seen that before on any platform. I'll discuss this with you in email and get to the bottom of it.

Double check that your php.ini file allows you to upload files. Most of the forms in Moodle seem to use multi-part forms for data. Information from these forms are quietly discarded when you click submit by php....

I have the same problem. There's no admin account created, and I can't get in!

Could it be php? I'm using 4.0.6 on Red Hat Linux 7.2

Someone email me a more detailed explanation, or give me access to an installation via ssh or something. I'd really like to solve this problem because it seems to only affect a few and I haven't been able to duplicate it yet.

Abdul, did you check your DirectoryIndex setting?

Incidentally, the "free cron solution for windows" is discussed in the Install documentation and is located here:

Oh, Martin, what the nice courseware you made! Now it's time to start with .chm documentation. Well, it will cost a pretty penny to read Moodle documentation online from Yugoslavia. E-mail it to me as soon as possible.

Best regards

Do you have plans for a gradebook?
