MoodleTip - Feedback and Solving Problems
Source: Email from Moodle user.
It's always great to get affirmations like this one about the work one does and I'm certainly grateful to my PLN for providing those in abundance. However, every solution brings new opportunities for learning in the form of problems:
Below is my response...what would you response be?
Thanks for the email and my apologies for not responding sooner.
Your old address should work, but you need to put the contents of the Moodle folder at what is called the "root" level of your site. Wherever that address points, you put the contents of your Moodle site there, not in a subfolder (e.g. Moodle). That means that when people type in your address, it will go straight to your Moodle site's index page because it is "in the path." I hope I'm not confusing with geek speak!
As to the dbase problem, that really does sound like a corrupt dbase that you will need to fix. What you'll need to do is optimize/repair your MySQL table. How to accomplish this is limited if your PHPMyAdmin is unavailable. If you have physical access to the server, though, or can access it remotely in a way that allows you to run programs (I presume Windows-based server since you're running XAMPP), then you can try using Navicat Lite to "repair/optimize" your database(s).
Here is a tutorial on how to repair your MySQL database -
If you can't login to your MySQL, then things are far worse off. There is a way to accomplish that and I can send you an email with that info...but it can be touch and go. Here's a blog entry--Conversations that Solve Problems--that I hope will provide some guidance to you.
Finally, I urge you to join MoodleMayhem.org email list and/or Facebook group, where a wonderful group of folks might be able to offer deeper insights.
