The easiest way to install is to use Moodle and Moodle.org’s automated install feature. However there are times when this is not an option, and in these cases you can download the plugin zip files locally and then upload them into the installation interface. There are three steps in this process.

  1. Check your PHP max_execution_time
  2. Download the plugin files
  3. Go to your site’s plugins installer and install them


1. Check your site’s PHP max_execution_time

This should be set to 90 or greater. The PoodLL filter is bigger than most plugins, and it’s possible that the installation will timeout if the max_execution_time is too low. Check this by visiting:
Site Administration->Server->Php Info

It will look like this.


If it is too low, see here for details on how to increase it, or simply ask your admin people, or server hosting company to do it.


2. Download the plugin files

Download the PoodLL Filter and each of the PoodLL plugins that you wish the install.

3. Go to your site’s plugins installer and install them

Your Moodle site has a handy system for installing plugins from zip files. From the site administration menu, go to:
plugins -> install plugins


Begin the Installation of each of the plugins, by uploading the zip file into the file area displayed.
Moodle should detect the plugin type automatically.

E.g


Let Moodle lead you through the installation. Leave the settings as their defaults. Notably the PoodLL filter has a lot of settings that on installation/upgrade are not displayed with any context. Simply leave them as is, scroll to the bottom and continue to the end of the installation.

Later you should return however to enter your registration key at least in the PoodLL filter general settings page.
