Would any version of moodle work on the intel itanium Windows 2003 system?
Requirement is for a 'non-production' / internal demo single server system.
I saw a post related to the slowness in itanium 2008,but nothing on itanium 2003.
Slightly unhelpful answer - Moodle makes no requirement about the underlying processor hardware. If it will run a web server, PHP and a database then you are good to go. There is more to Moodle being "fast enough" than the processor speed and technology.
So, yes, try it and see.
Caveat - I know absolutely nothing about Windows
The application is compatible with X86 platform of windows . However Intel IA64 systems are not able to run x86 applications and executables .
So what you need on your IA64 (hardware) is an operating system which in turn is capable of running the system software required by Moodle. There are four categories: a) a web server b) fairly sophisticated PHP environment, CLI and connected to the web server c) a database server d) partly optional tools like GhostScript, LaTeX, .... For details about the first three, ref the release notes I have already linked twice.
Or, have you arrived at the head of the blind alley, https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=370619#p1494021 ?
Ramesh, as long as you're using Server version 2008 and 2008 R2, you're good to go until January 2020 as this was the time until Windows will receive updates for bug fixes only for Itanium based hardware. while you saying application is x86 compatible, it actually relies on the web server and application server, as long as you're on 2008/2008 R2 64-bit version of windows operating system, you wont have problem as you can use 64-bit PHP since version 7, and as well 64-bit version of DB server. your moodle wont have any issues running with itaniums.
Thanks Visvanath. Checked the release notes for 2.9. They seem to be either related to functionality or installation done component wise and not using the Windows installation package...i may be wrong. I trust,using the installation package would not entail working on the release notes.
Now it is my turn to be confused, sorry! I understood your prev. post as you've successfully installed Moodle.
The release notes of 2.9 are here https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Moodle_2.9_release_notes. Your attachment shows messages during installation, warning you that what is not in 2.9. (Hint: People here work with a Free Software and get irritated if you make a DOCX file to show a screen-shot!)
As you may have noticed, I am not a Windows person. But the way I understand Windows packages, they come bundled with web server, PHP and database server. Those are for the desktop users. As a Windows Server person, you should get the Moodle code and install it "manually". Any way, noticed that you started a new thread in the right place: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=371416.
