5should read the installation guide which is \r
6stored in the doc subdirectory:\r
7\r
8 doc/install.html\r
9\r
10You can also access the latest version (as well \r
11complete information about upgrading and using \r
12Moodle on the moodle.com web site:\r

17you can also access a local copy of all this \r

23For the impatient, here is a basic outline of the \r
24installation process, which normally takes me only \r
25a few minutes:\r
26\r
271) Move the Moodle files into your web directory. \r
28\r
292) Create an empty directory somewhere to store \r
30 uploaded files (NOT accessible via the web).\r
31 This directory must be writeable by the web server\r
32 process.\r
33\r
343) Create a single database for Moodle to store all\r
753db9ac 35 it's tables in (or choose an existing database).\r
372ce3d1 36\r
374) Copy the file config-dist.php to config.php, and \r
38 edit it with all your own settings.\r
39\r
405) Visit your new home page with a web browser. Moodle\r
41 will lead you through the rest of the setup, \r
42 creating an admin account and so on.\r
43\r
446) Set up a cron task to call the file admin/cron.php\r
45 every five minutes or so.\r
46\r
