Background: I started using Moodle in the spring for several months, but got discouraged when the software admin work became more than my skills. Specifically I found the upgrading process (to the latest moodle version) onerous. Also, there were some other problems that dispite my best efforts I could not fix.
I am part of a fairly large church organization that I am sure would have a volunteer with the skills needed to do this work. But I have no idea what the qualifications are that I would be looking for. EDIT: Our installation is on a shared hosting plan (Dreamhost)
Question: What are the skills I should be advertising for someone to do the software administration work. For example I guess they need to know how to use sftp. Do they need to know PHP?
Hopefully if my question is not clear folks can help me figure out what I really need to be asking! I'm not talking about course administration. That seems to be a general skill set that I don't really need specific help with.
