The problem that everyone was experiencing was not due to Moodle or its installation. It seems that during an update the night before the PHP did not recompile 100% which left a few settings corrupt. This problem has been resolved and no one should be experiencing any further problems. This affected everyone on server36, and did not pin-point itself to moodle. We apologize for any trouble you experienced and would like to assure you that this problem will be checked more thoroughly next time reported.
