Moodle is a free and open-source learning management system. Whether you are an educator or a student in a university or school, this platform is a must-have for your online learning project. If you want to know how to install Moodle on your hosting, this tutorial is just for you!
Hostinger gives you the option to install Moodle instantly by using its one-click installer. Here’s how:
That’s it! After the installation process is complete, you will see Moodle under the List of Installed Applications. To visit your Moodle website, simply click on the URL provided and log in using your admin username and password.
If your web hosting provider doesn’t have an auto-installer for Moodle, you can follow this step-by-step guide on how to install it manually.
Before we can proceed with the manual installation process, we have to take care of a few things:
Important: Please note that the upload location matters. For example, if you wish to install Moodle on your main domain name (www.yourdomain.com), you will need to upload the files directly to your public_html folder.
That’s pretty much it for the preparation stage! Now, let’s get down to business.
Now that you’ve uploaded all the files and created a MySQL database let’s go ahead and install Moodle.
Congratulations, you now know how to install Moodle on your website! Now you can continue to make necessary changes in the admin area to get your site up and running.
Moodle is a great platform for educators and students to communicate and set up learning environments, and by finishing this tutorial, you learned how to install Moodle automatically and manually.
We hope this guide was helpful for building your next online learning platform! Leave us a comment to share any questions or thoughts regarding this tutorial.

Hi, I am facing these two errors on installation page, 1. Your database has tables using Antelope as the file format. Full UTF-8 support in MySQL and MariaDB requires the Barracuda file format. Please convert the tables to the Barracuda file format 2. For full support of UTF-8 both MySQL and MariaDB require you to change your MySQL setting 'innodb_large_prefix' to 'ON' How do I resolve these?
