This document applies to Joomdle Release 1.0.8

Before installing Joomdle ensure you have installed and configured the following:

  • Joomla
  • Moodle
  • 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.



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.

Site Backup

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.
