I've been over every way that I found to install Moodle 2.0 and up (Current stable version 2.7+). I've attempting to install since I’ve been a customer of Dreamhost, October 2013, and have yet to successfully get it working. I have been over this with support as well, I can post my support log, my custom phprc, and anything else if it will help.
Moodle 1.9.19+, which by the way has been discontinued little over a year now, works fine. Although I cannot install another instance of Moodle 1.9.19+ using the One-Click Install feature anymore. Moodle 2.3.11 is no longer supported by Moodle either. (Source: http://download.moodle.org/)
Is there a plan to move Moodle to more current, stable, and secure version? Can anyone guarantee that Moodle 2.x will work with VPS or a dedicated server? My Moodle site will only have 20 active users at any given time. We don't intend to allow more then that for contract reasons with our clients.
Could this be a MySQL issue and can there be something wrong with my MySQL server? I notice during the creation of the tables for the database during the install that it times out. I've tried to fix this with support suggestion with a custom phprc.
upload_max_filesize = 20M
post_max_size = 20M
max_execution_time = 500 (<- I've gone as far as 3000 which does not have any effect.)
max_input_time = 500 (<- I've gone as far as 3000 which does not have any effect.)
memory_limit = 128M
extension = intl.so
display_errors = off
I'm willing and able to do anything at this point, VPS, multiple dedicated servers (although if I need that for 20 users, I'll be wondering why and expecting an answer before money changes hands). If I move to VPS or a dedicated solutions and Moodle 2.x will not work on these solutions, how hard will it be to downgrade my service back to shared hosting? Will there be any downtime and how much?
