Thanks, I believe I am halfway there! My assumption is c:\moodle\moodle should be renamed or copied to c:\moodle\moodle15 and/or c:\moodle\moodle16.
How do I create multiple databases in MySQL? Remember I am relatively dumb, but adventuresome. Pointing me to directions is OK with me, I will see if they work for me.
On my sandbox called MoodleChris, I now have 1.6 beta 2 up and running and it converted all the courses (I told it the cookie name should be MoodChris16 but I think both use the same IP address). Naturally I first copied my entire folder c:\moodle (with Apache
, MySQL and moodle etc in it) to c:\moodle15. And zipped it to boot as added protection. My Moodle 1.5.3 has a cookie of MoodleChris and the standard 127.0.0.1 IP.
So on my MoodleChris install, you are telling me to 1) rename c:\moodle\moodle to c:\moodle\moodle16 and 2) copy c:\moodle15\moodle to c:\moodle\moodle15. Then 3) create the multiple databases in MySQL (which I am going to learn how to do).
Next question is how do I enter each version of Moodle? I am guessing each would be associated with a different IP and a different cookie.
Thank you very much. When I have done it on MoodleChris, I will write up instructions and try it on my work sandbox MoodleGregg, then post it for other newbie's .
