I participated in the moodle course and followed the video tutorials that walked us through backing up our Moodle and then restoring it.
I have had success with the process until it comes time to restore the Moodle I backed up. I get to the 'restore' area and try to "choose a file", it starts the process of uploading the file but never goes any further then the spinning circle.
If I drag and drop my file, it will load but when I click restore, it simply opens the same page with a red exclamation mark on the 'choose a file' box. I have repeated the process for the last 4 hours and even did another back up to make sure there wasn't a problem with the first one.
I am moving my Moodle to my personal site that is with hostgator. I followed another Youtube video that stepped through each step of the setup process, and it appears to have worked because I have a Moodle site on hostgator now. I was now trying to restore the Moodle site I created while working through the Moodle course.
I have attached a short video of what is happening in hopes that this will be helpful and maybe answer any questions quicker.
Thanks for any assistance you can be.
