753db9ac 4If you are installing the first time, then you \r
5should read the installation guide which is \r
ac0ac752 6part of the Moodle documentation (along with \r
7information about upgrading etc):\r

ac0ac752 11There is a copy of all this documentation as part of \r
12this Moodle distribution. You can access your local\r
13copy of the installation guide here:\r

ac0ac752 15 lang/en/docs/install.html\r
372ce3d1 16\r
753db9ac 17Once Moodle is installed on your machine, then \r
18you can also access a local copy of all this \r
19documentation (localised to your language) at:\r

24For the impatient, here is a basic outline of the \r
25installation process, which normally takes me only \r
26a few minutes:\r
27\r
281) Move the Moodle files into your web directory. \r
29\r
302) Create an empty directory somewhere to store \r
31 uploaded files (NOT accessible via the web).\r
32 This directory must be writeable by the web server\r
33 process.\r
34\r
353) Create a single database for Moodle to store all\r
753db9ac 36 it's tables in (or choose an existing database).\r
372ce3d1 37\r
384) Copy the file config-dist.php to config.php, and \r
39 edit it with all your own settings.\r
40\r
415) Visit your new home page with a web browser. Moodle\r
42 will lead you through the rest of the setup, \r
43 creating an admin account and so on.\r
44\r
456) Set up a cron task to call the file admin/cron.php\r
46 every five minutes or so.\r
