I'm using a pretty out of date moodle system as of now because dreamhost doesn't carry the automatic upgrades anymore.
I THINK other users on dreamhost still do host moodle systems though so...
To do the upgrade manually moodle states that dreamhosts servers do not have this installed or enabled: This is word for word what it states: [color=#FF0000][b]"The Zip PHP extension is now required by Moodle, info-ZIP binaries or PclZip library are not used anymore.
php_extension xmlrpc should be installed and enabled for best results"[/b][/color]
What does this mean? And can I, how can enable it or install it so that I can do the necessary upgrades?
I have been a customer for a LOOOOOONG time and hence am still around but do I need to look for another host to run a current version of moodle because of this? I am not well versed in this stuff and fumble my way through everything so please go easy on me.
