I am going to describe what I suggest you do. Not knowing your ability, you might be able to just read and do what I suggest. However, I am willing to help provide more detail and guide you through this process.
Here are the steps.
1) Using the Create Databases tool, create a database
and name it something that you can remember, like "moodle3". Make sure that its collation is utf8mb4_unicode_ci. Create a "database
user" and assign this user to the database that you just created. Now you should have one of three major pieces of Moodle.
2) Using the cPanel FileManager tool, create a folder called something like "moodledata3" one level before www or public_html or htdocs. Change its permissions to 777. You now have the second of three major Moodle components.
the latest version of Moodle to your PC. Using cPanel's FileManager, move this file (upload
) to www, pubic_html, or htdocs. If you happen to have a folder named "moodle" already there, rename it to something like "moodlex." At this point, don't delete the current moodle that might be there. Using FileManger, extract the moodle file that you just uploaded. You now have the third of three major pieces in place.
4) From your browser, go to www.yourdomain.com/moodle
. The moodle installation will begin. You will need to remember your database name, database username, and moodledata folder name and location as you progress through the installation.
Okay, these are essentially the steps. I might have shown some of these steps in the video of mine that I shared with you, the one where you became lost.
We can work through these steps again, one at a time. Yes, I know that you are eager to get going, but our timezone differences (and other things happening in our lives today and tomorrow) are going to slow us down. But possibly doing one step each day will give you time to reflect on what you are doing, and learning.
If you want to explore a little, click on cPanel's PHPMyAdmin tool (button). This tool will show you if you have any already created databases, and to the right, it shows your database version and number, and your php version. Oh, if you happen to be in PHPMyAdmin, take a screenshot and post it. This will not only help me, but if the other good folks are watching, it will help them too. Remember, I don't have Planet Hoster, but cPanel provides some common tools. For example, in my cPanel, there is a tool to switch php versions. I don't detect that you have this tool in cPanel. When you are don't exploring PHPMyAdmin, just leave it alone.
