I decided to create a new post for this instead of piggybacking off of other posts.
About a month ago, I created a video showing how I would install Moodle on my VPS if I were only to use cPanel, given that your VPS already meets Moodle's minimum requirements. I actually do not use cPanel, I use FTP and SSH. I made this video surrounding some discussion that included Ken's help. Of course, not all VPSs are the same, so what I show in these videos may not work on other VPSs.
Ken asked if I could show how to upgrade a Moodle using only cPanel. I completed this video yesterday.
I am posting both videos in this topic. I am always seeking feedback, and since I produce my own videos, my thoughts are to try to keep these videos updated, based upon your suggestions. Both videos are each under 10 minutes. Some folks already made some suggestions to my first video, which I have already incorporated.
This post can be referenced, as needed. I have noticed a fair number of new folks using various one-step methods, and having problems with the install and upgrading. Perhaps these videos will encourage some folks to avoid the one-step methods. These videos also have "chapters" to help folks refer to a specific point within the video.
I am also hoping that these videos support some of the generic steps in managing your Moodle, and that people will find the more efficient ways of doing some of these steps. (These videos, for example, do not touch upon the GIT method.)
What other videos would be most helpful? For example:
- How to prepare your VPS for Moodle
- How to migrate your Moodle
- How to install Opcache
- How to begin tuning your database
- Some initial Moodle setup tasks
So, here they are.
