Greetings!
I’m successfully running Bitnami Moodle 1.9.3 on Win XP and Win2003 server
Do I need to upgrade yet?

Should I wait for your Moodle 2 stack?

Can you guide me through the best way to upgrade so I don’t have to restore all my courses etc please.
Tim

Hi,

You can upgrade to the latest version if you prefer.

1. First of all you should create a backup of your installation. This is simple, stop the servers and copy the installation directory.

2. Create a dump of the database. It requires the MySQL database running and type the following in the command prompt:

> mysqldump -u root -p bitnami_moodle > moodle_backup.sql

3. Install the new Stack

4. Restore the database:

> mysql -u root -p bitnami_moodle < moodle_backup.sql

I hope it helps.

I think I am in the same spot as timd but its not the point of installing a new bitnami stack since there is no Moodle 2 Bitnami Stack.

Hi,
I am using Moodle 2.0 complete stack on Windows XP environment.
Moodle 2.0 setup is throwing up a error in mysql table creation. It creates the database and the user but it is not able to create the tables mdl_config & mdl_user.

Hi,

Sorry we need more datails. Are you installing the 2.0 Stack on Windows or are you upgrading an existing one? Which is the specific error?

Where you say to make a MySQL dump and :3. install the new stack:,

Should the new stack be installed over top of old stack, or can old stack be uninstalled (like with Revo Uninstaller) and THEN install new stack completely fresh?

Does it matter?
