I hope you can help me. Little background: I have my own CentOS Linux release 7.9.2009 (Core) server and have been building Wordpress sites for some years, but have no experience with Moodle.
One of my clients / turned permanent employer wants me to host the moodle install (currently with a 3rd party) as well as the website I build and host for her already. I made some initial enquiries, and saw that moodle runs on mysql and php seemed like not such a stretch to figure it out to be able to migrate the whole thing over and my server should be able to handle it easy.
I believe I have all the correct specs on the server, I have checked (versions, extensions etc.) - so tech requirements are met.. i am almost sure
I have a fresh hosting account and a clean database. I have CLI access but zero experience there
The third party currently hosting the Moodle install will not give me any information whatsoever, to help me make the transition - only what is included and not included in the backup - see screenshot.
I have admin login to the front end of the Moodle install in question and can see the version they are running is 3.9.2+
I asked if they could upgrade to latest version before export, they said no.
So I need help with Installing this 3.9.2+ version on my server, I have WHM/cPanel/Terminal access
and also understanding what it means for us if those not included files in the screenshot are dropped.
Will the student experience change? Is this just standard procedure/language?
Is there a way for me to see what exactly is going to be dropped and install myself?
Thank you for any advice,
