Moodle dirroot error

Hi all,

Has anyone installed moodle on dreamhost? I’m getting an error that makes no sense to me:

Error detected in config.php
Error in: $CFG->dirroot = ‘/home/mynet/’;
Try this: $CFG->dirroot = ‘/home/.naliidryer/mynet/’;

When I change dirroot as requested, no other part of moodle can be found. Does anyone know what .naliidryer is and why the script seems to want it?


It’s the name of the disk your data resides on (IIRC). You should not put this into your path, as it’s subject to change. Instead just leave it as:


Are you sure ~/mynet/* exists?
