    flag file uploads 1 php flag session auto start 0 php flag session bug compat warn 0 You can also do things like define the maximum size for uploaded files LimitRequestBody 0 php value upload max filesize 2M php value post max size 2M The easiest thing to do is just copy the sample file from lib htaccess and edit it to suit your needs It contains further instructions For example in a Unix shell cp lib htaccess htaccess 4 2 Creating a database You need to create an empty database eg moodle in your database system along with a special user eg moodleuser that has access to that database and that database only You could use the root user if you wanted to for a test server but this is not recommended for a production system if hackers manage to discover the password then your whole database system would be at risk rather than just one database If you are using a webhost they will probably have a control panel web interface for you to create your database The Cpanel system is one of the most popular of these To create a database in Cpanel Click on the MySQL Databases icon Type moodle in the database field and click Add Database Type a username and password not one you use elsewhere in the respective fields and click Add User Now use the Add User to Database button to give this new user account ALL rights to the new database Note that the username and database names may be prefixed by your Cpanel account name When entering this information into the Moodle installer use the full names If you have access to Unix command lines then you can do the same sort of thing by typing commands Here are some example Unix command lines for MySQL mysql u root p CREATE DATABASE moodle GRANT SELECT INSERT UPDATE DELETE CREATE DROP INDEX ALTER ON moodle TO moodleuser localhost IDENTIFIED BY yourpassword quit mysqladmin p reload And some example command lines for PostgreSQL su postgres psql c create user moodleuser createdb template1 psql c create database moodle U moodleuser template1 psql c alter user moodleuser nocreatedb template1 4 3 Creating a data directory Moodle will also need some space on your server s hard disk to store uploaded files such as course documents and user pictures The Moodle installer tries hard to create this directory for you but if it fails then you will have to create a directory for this purpose manually For security it s best that this directory is NOT accessible directly via the web The easiest way to do this is to simply locate it OUTSIDE the web directory but if you must have it in the web directory then protect it by creating a file in the data directory called htaccess containing this line deny from all AllowOverride None To make sure that Moodle can save uploaded files in this directory check that the web server software eg Apache has permission to read write and execute in this directory On Unix machines this means setting the owner of the directory to be something like nobody or apache and then giving that user read write and execute permissions On Cpanel systems you can use the File Manager to find the folder click on it then choose Change Permissions On many shared hosting servers you will probably need to restrict all file access to your group to prevent other webhost customers from looking at or changing your files but provide full read write access to everyone else which will allow the web server to access your files Speak to your server administrator if you are having trouble setting this up securely In particular some sites that use a PHP feature known as Safe Mode may require the administrator to create this directory properly for you 5 Go to the admin page to continue configuration Once the basic config php has been correctly created in the previous step trying to access the front page of your site will take you the admin page for the rest of the configuration The first time you access this admin page you will be presented with a GPL shrinkwrap agreement with which you must agree before you can continue with the setup Now Moodle will start setting up your database and creating tables to store data Firstly the main database tables are created You should see a number of SQL statements followed by status messages in green or red that look like this CREATE TABLE course id int 10 unsigned NOT NULL auto increment category int 10 unsigned NOT NULL default 0 password varchar 50 NOT NULL default fullname varchar 254 NOT NULL default shortname varchar 15 NOT NULL default summary text NOT NULL format tinyint 4 NOT NULL default 1 teacher varchar 100 NOT NULL default Teacher startdate int 10 unsigned NOT NULL default 0 enddate int 10 unsigned NOT NULL default 0 timemodified int 10 unsigned NOT NULL default 0 PRIMARY KEY id ENGINE MyISAM SUCCESS and so on followed by Main databases set up successfully If you don t see these then there must have been some problem with the database or the configuration settings you defined in config php Check that PHP isn t in a restricted Safe Mode commercial web hosts sometimes have safe mode turned on You can check PHP variables by creating a little file containing php phpinfo and looking at it through a browser Check all these and try this page again Scroll down the very bottom of the page and press the Continue link You should now see a form where you can define more configuration variables for your installation such as the default language SMTP hosts and so on Don t worry too much about getting everything right just now you can always come back and edit these later on using the admin interface The defaults are designed to be useful and secure for

    refine their answer over time This answer is private and can only be seen by the teacher who can offer feedback and a grade on each journal entry It s usually a good idea to have about one Journal activity per week Glossary This activity allows participants to create and maintain a list of definitions like a dictionary The entries can be searched or browsed in many different formats The glossary also allows teachers to export entries from one glossary to another the main one within the same course Finally it is possible to automatically create links to these entries from throughout the course Lesson A lesson delivers content in an interesting and flexible way It consists of a number of pages Each page normally ends with a question and a number of possible answers Depending on the student s choice of answer they either progress to the next page or are taken back to a previous page Navigation through the lesson can be straight forward or complex depending largely on the structure of the material being presented Chats The Chat module allows participants to have a real time synchronous discussion via the web This is a useful way to get a different understanding of each other and the topic being discussed the mode of using a chat room is quite different from the asynchronous forums The Chat module contains a number of features for managing and reviewing chat discussions Choices A choice activity is very simple the teacher asks a question and specifies a choice of multiple responses It can be useful as a quick poll to stimulate thinking about a topic to allow the class to vote on a direction for the course or to gather research consent Assignments Assignments allow the teacher to specify a task that requires students to prepare digital content any format and submit it by uploading it to the server Typical assignments include essays projects reports and so on This module includes grading facilities Quizzes This module allows the teacher to design and set quiz tests consisting of multiple choice true false and short answer questions These questions are kept in a categorised database and can be re used within courses and even between courses Quizzes can allow multiple attempts Each attempt is automatically marked and the teacher can choose whether to give feedback or to show correct answers This module includes grading facilities Surveys The Survey module provides a number of verified survey instruments that have been found useful in assessing and stimulating learning in online environments Teachers can use these to gather data from their students that will help them learn about their class and reflect on their own teaching Resources Resources are content information the teacher wants to bring into the course These can be prepared files uploaded to the course server pages edited directly in Moodle or external web pages made to appear part of this course Labels This is a not a true activity it is a dummy
