In this chapter, you have learned what the building blocks of Moodle look like and where they are located. Furthermore, we have dealt with a number of options on how to manage files.
As we found out in the previous chapter, Moodle can be installed on multiple operating systems, supports a wide range of database systems, and can be used with different web servers. Due to the openness of Moodle, it should have come across in this chapter that all its components can be accessed without any restrictions. This allows the management of files via a number of channels; we covered Moodle’s File Management, Web Host File Management, File Management via FTP and File Management via WebDAV.
Now that your system is up and running and you know what its inside looks like, it is time to add courses and users.
