        Sorry, I really wat to know the advantage or disadvantages of installing Moodle on windows and Linux. Which one do you recommend. Are the installation process the same?

        • Ravi Saive says:


          You can check out advantage and disadvantage of Moodle at official site, and about installation instructions, I suggest you to go for Linux, because this article only shows Linux installation, and Windows installation steps are different.

    I was not able to create the ‘moodledata’ directory; after setting SELinux to permissive, I was able to. I was getting the following error, “Data directory (/var/www/moodledata) cannot be created by the installer. I had to add SELinux label to the /var/www/moodle directory and I was able to proceed. semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t /var/www/moodledata.

    Thank for the tutorial though.

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Yes that correct the installer won’t able to create ‘moodledata’ directory if SELinux set to permissive, that’s the reason either you’ve to disable it or set SELinux rule on httpd to allow modifications to directory..

      Thanks for the tip..:)
