This document applies to Joomdle Release 0.9.
Before installing Joomdle ensure you have installed and configured the following:
- Joomla 1.5.x
- Moodle 1.9.x or Moodle 2.x
- XML-RPC for PHP
- Any 3rd party Joomla extensions you wish to integrate with Joomdle. Note It is possible to integrate with 3rd party products after Joomdle has been installed and configured.
Once Joomla 1.5.x is installed and running correctly, you will need to activate Joomla's web services. This can be done through Site -> Global System Configuration, System Tab, System Configuration. Note: This step is NOT required or Joomla 2.5 or later
PHP XML-RPC Prerequisites
In order for Joomdle to connect Joomla! with Moodle, the PHP XML-RPC libraries must be installed and configured.
If you are installing Moodle for the first time, it will check for the existence of the PHP extension XML-RPC. Please ensure it is installed.
If you have already installed Moodle you will need to ensure that XML-RPC is installed, you can check by using PHP Info found in the Joomla backend under Help / System Info / PHP Information.
Please ensure that you have backed up your web server (both Joomla! and your Moodle). If you are using a Joomla! Backup Extension such as Akeebackup, you may need to backup your Moodle data directory separately depending how you have setup and configured Moodle.
