I am trying to install 3.9.1 using install.php through the chrome browser
The install runs OK to the first page then I get to the confirm paths page and it seems happy with the web address and the moodle directory but it does not like the data directory address. When moodle tries to make that directory I get:
Parent directory (/home/g/l/global2018) is not writeable. Data directory (/home/g/l/global2018/moodledata) cannot be created by the installer.
If I manually make a moodledata directory and insert publi_html into the data directory path, install sees the directory OK but tells me it is not secure and will not proceed.
I have also tried installing via the command line. The html sever is running PHP 7.2.3 but the CLI is running 5.5.9 so Moodle doesn't like that either.
Grateful for thoughts. TVMIA
