4I highly recommend you read the detailed help on \r
5installation, upgrading and use of Moodle, stored\r
6in the doc subdirectory of this installation, or \r
7read at:\r
8\r
9 http://moodle.com/doc/\r
10\r
11\r
12For the impatient, here is a basic outline of the \r
13installation process, which normally takes me only \r
14a few minutes:\r
15\r
161) Move the Moodle files into your web directory. \r
17\r
182) Create an empty directory somewhere to store \r
19 uploaded files (NOT accessible via the web).\r
20 This directory must be writeable by the web server\r
21 process.\r
22\r
233) Create a single database for Moodle to store all\r
24 it's tables in.\r
25\r
264) Copy the file config-dist.php to config.php, and \r
27 edit it with all your own settings.\r
28\r
295) Visit your new home page with a web browser. Moodle\r
30 will lead you through the rest of the setup, \r
31 creating an admin account and so on.\r
32\r
336) Set up a cron task to call the file admin/cron.php\r
34 every five minutes or so.\r
35\r

37Cheers!\r
