221. First steps with Moodle (the .deb version) in Debian

This is a very brief, very basic outline.

Looking online the general recommendation seems to be to install moodle yourself and avoid the debian package version. While not a stranger to rolling my own, I just want to play with moodle for learning purposes because that's what my uni uses.

Anyway, do
sudo apt-get install moodle

Once it's installed, look at
ls /etc/apache2/sites-enabled

If there's nothing moodly, then do
sudo cp /etc/moodle/apache2.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/moodle.conf
sudo service apache2 restart

Navigate to http://localhost/moodle

The actual installation takes ages, so go get yourself a cup of tea/coffee to prevent your mouse finger from getting itchy. In other words, just wait until you get a list showing that all steps have completed and that you may continue.

You need to allow cookies.

Fill out the admin stuff - country, password, city etc etc.

At this point you can log in, create a class and start exploring. Have fun.
