I've been looking at docs for the requirements for moodle 1.6 (http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_Moodle), and as I understand it, for full language compliance MySQL 4.1.16 is required.
As our server currrently doesn't support 4.1.16, i'm going to upgrade our server to support 1.6 and i'd like to get the whole server fit with ideal moodle requirements.
I am wondering what peoples thoughts are for the latest versions. I prefer apache 1, but should I use php 5, and should I be done with it and upgrade to mysql 5? I have heard reports of mysql 5 bugs? What would you use for an ideal moodle instalation?
Dan, I recently upgraded from MySQL 4.1.10 to 5.0.21. I run Moodle 1.5.4+ under Apache 2.0.55/PHP 4.4.1/APC 3.0.8 on Solaris 8. The only problem (so far!) is that the Choice activity code used a field name that is now a reserved word in MySQL 5.x. This was corrected in Moodle 1.6, and fixes for 1.5.x were discussed in the Choice forum. Someday I'll try PHP 5.x.... --James
