The install file for Moodle is
if [ -f xc-moodle/xc-moodle-install ]; then
log notice "Installing moodle"
if bash xc-moodle-install; then
log notice "moodle installed successfully"
log notice "moodle install failed with code $?"
log notice 'moodle not found'
The xc-moodle-install file is:
#take backup from existing moodle
#su - postgres
#pg_dump moodle-xs > moodle-xs.sql
#copy the moodle folder to /library
rm -rf /library/moodle
cp -r moodle /library/moodle
chown -R apache:apache /library/moodle
#restore the moodle-xs.sql backup of the database
psql -d moodle-xs -f moodle-xs.sql
#replace config.php file in /var/www/moodle/web and update
/etc/httpd/conf.d/moodle.conf (if necessary)
cp config.php /var/www/moodle/web
cp moodle.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d
Naturally, Moodle itself is installed as part of XS-0.7. This installs a
PostgreSQL backup of Moodle content (courses). It also moved the Moodle
data to /library.
This was a mistake in the XS implementation. Data directories which can
with use should be in /library not in the root partition. This is the
The essence of this technique is that 20-xc-generic needs to be
installed by xo-custom, xs-setup, or in the build. Once that is
installed, a deployment can
perform any additional installations of content or packages via xc-install.
It would probably be useful to have a library of these optional
Currently, I am using this technique to install the courseware for the
activity, Django, the library, wiki4schools, mediawiki, wiktionary, the
beginnings of a learning management system, and the beginnings of an
itembank of questions. I hope to have an install script for IIAB
(probably one for the front end and one or more for the content).
