- I wanna close this chapter by addressing the issue…of production server security.…This is another Moodle-specific issue…you're bound to encounter…because many educational institutions…that would run Moodle would also run servers…with very strict security.…If your organization is like the university I teach at,…chances are you won't be able to enact…the third phase in our Moodle development protocol,…uploading modified files to the live server by yourself.…Instead, what you'll need to do is first…test the modifications on your test installation.…Schools will often grant you a test space…on their server with increased permissions…for development purposes.…
If not, you'll have to configure your own test server…to have settings as close as possible…to the production server of the school.…In either case, once you ascertain…that the files work on the test server,…your next step would be to send…those specific modified files over to…the server techs of the school.…The school's server techs would then replace…the selected specific live files on the production server…
