fields and click "Add User".  
4.  Now use the "Add User to Database" button to give this new user account "ALL" 
rights to the new database.  
5. 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 
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 
       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 
Step 2: Create a Data Directory 
Moodle will also need some space on your server s hard disk to store uploaded files, such 
as course documents, user pictures and uploads. 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 (recommended).  
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 
To make sure that Moodle can save uploaded files in this directory, check that the web 
server software (e.g. 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 
(777). 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 web host 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.  
Step 3: Run The Installer Script 
To run the installer script (install.php), just try to access 
your Moodle main URL using a web browser, or       
(The Installer will try to set a session cookie. If you get 
a popup warning in your browser make sure you        
accept that cookie!). The first installation setup screen 
(Fig. 82) will prompt you for a default site language.
