I'm desperate: whatever I try, I don't manage to get a fresh version of Moodle 3.8 installed.
Here's my current site: https://integraleimpulse.de ~ running fine, but when I change the theme to 'classic' (or the freshly installed fordson theme) I get the same appearance problems as described below!!
So I created a subfolder structure:
and redirected http://dev.integraleimpulse.de > / dev/moodle
Uploaded the most recent moodle.zip and extracted to /moodle
Ran the installation script (fresh database, the above moodledata dir) - all without any error messages - and in the end it looks like this:
Same appearance (no theme, CSS problems?) when I switch my main site to another theme than boost.
What I don't get: complete new installation, new dirs, new database, even installed from a different browser session!
What's going wrong? How can I install a new Moodle with working themes??
If that would be running, I'd like to migrate my courses via backup / restore from the installation with the theme problems (I'd like to switch so fordson).
