Moodle will detect that configuration is necessary and 
will lead you through some screens to help you create 
a new configuration file called config.php.  
After the language selection screen, Moodle will detect 
whether PHP is set up correctly on the server (Fig. 83). 
If any settings do not Pass this check, make sure you 
correct whatever feature on the server that has not 
Fig. 83 
passed  before  proceeding  with  installation.  See          
General Web Server Settings section for suggestions.   
The next screen in Moodle's installer (Fig. 84) will ask 
you  about  the  location  of  Moodle  on  your  server.         
You will be asked for the absolute Web address for 
your site, and for the name of the directory where 
Moodle is located. Make sure you enter the server 
name. Finally, enter the server path for where the 
 moodledata  directory is located (see Step 2). 
Now installer will ask for your database connection 
information (Fig. 85), starting with the Type  of         
database (MySQL or Postgre SQL) used. This is often 
a point where a problem may occur if you are not         
Fig. 84 
familiar  with  these  properties.  In  most  cases  the        
Host Server name will be simply  localhost . Some 
ISP's will use a specific name or IP address for their 
database server, in which case you will enter that 
name or number (e.g. mysql.ispname.net). 
Now add the name of your Database as it was set up. 
This is typically prefaced with the name of your 
Moodle server, an  underscore, and then the name of 
the database (Fig. 85). Do the same when you add the 
User name assigned to the database. Note that for 
Fig. 85 
security reasons you should create a unique user 
name and password for Moodle's database. Finally, 
add just the Password  (no  underscore)  that  was        
assigned to the database. By default Moodle uses a 
table prefix of  mdl . Unless you are a database admin 
or know what you are doing, do not change this value.    
At the end of the Installation process Moodle will try 
and write the config.php file into the right location.       
If Moodle is unable to do this (Fig. 86), which may be 
the case because of permission settings, you will be 
given an option to download the file so that you can 
then manually upload config.php into the main Moodle 
directory on the server.  
Fig. 86 
Add configuration settings the installer creates to the  
config dist.php file in the Moodle folder. Copy and   
paste to the top portion of the file as needed. Make    
sure there are no spaces at the bottom of this file 
after ?>. Finally, rename this file config.php
