Install Moodle 2.0.0 with xampp 1.7.4

YOu will need to fix :
1. admin/environment/php extension/openssl

To install the openssl library on Windows

Open the php.ini file found in the moodle/apache/bin (if not there then, in folder server/php/)
Find the line: ;extension=php_openssl.dll
Remove the ; at the beginning of the line
Restart apache if necessary

Note: if Moodle fails to create a public key in Admin > Networking > Settings, you’ll need to configurate your OPENSSL_CONF path. With Windows File Explorer find openssl.cnf file (usually in your php/extras directory). Rename it as openssl.conf. Then set OPENSSL_CONF in your Windows environment variable (example: C:/wamp/bin/php/extras/openssl/openssl.conf – do not forget the file name in the path, otherwise it doesn’t work)

To install the openssl library on Unix

You need to recompile PHP from source
add –with-openssl to the command line when you run configure

2. admin/environment/php extension/intl

The Internationalization extension (Intl) is a wrapper for the ICU library, a set of C/C++ and Java libraries that provide Unicode and Globalization support for software applications. It enables PHP programmers to perform UCA-conformant collation and date/time/number/currency formatting in their scripts.
MS Windows

To enable this extension add the following line to your php.ini file:


And then set the intl.default_locale and intl.error_level directives in your php.ini file.


intl.default_locale = en_utf8

intl.error_level = E_WARNING

The intl.error_level directive is optional.

3. Got a couple of errors saying that it couldnt find the php_intl.dll and icuuc36.dll
Copy 5 libaarty files icuu*36.dll source \xampp\php (leave old files) to xampp/apache/bin, enjoy it works 🙂

How to play SRT subtitle in Windows Media Player

What are subtitles?

Subtitles or captions are textual versions of the dialogue being played out in movies and videos. They are either the exact same dialogue in the same language, or they are translated versions of the dialogue in some other language. You are most likely to use subtitles when you don’t understand the speech properly, for example, if it’s in a foreign language or in an accent that is hard to catch. Subtitles are also used by hearing impaired people.

How to play subtitles?

Subtitles are generally available as .SRT or .SUB files which you can download from one of the many subtitle websites on the internet. You can just search for a subtitle on Google and you will surely find what you need in the first five results. Some of the popular subtitles sites are

1. Open Subtitles Database –

2. My Subtitles –

3. DivX Subtitles –

4. Movie Subtitles –

To display subtitles when playing video, you can use video players like VLC or GOM. Windows Media Player doesn’t support playing SRT subtitles by default.

To answer “how to play a SRT file on Windows Media Player”, just install the codec – DirectVobSub. DirectVobSub is a Directshow filter which allows you to display subtitles in Windows Media Player. It is also compatible with all Direct Show players. The latest version of Direct Vob Sub is 2.39. You can download it from here – It is a 450 KB download. After downloading it, just install it.

Now when whenever you want to view any subtitles, copy the SRT file to the same folder as your video and rename it to the same file as the movie but with the SRT extension. If your movie file is ABC.avi, then you should have your subtitle in the same folder. Now, open your video file in Windows Media Player. Go to Play → Captions and Subtitles and select On if Available.

Now whenever you play that video, you should see the subtitles near the bottom of the display window. The procedure is exactly the same for SUB subtitles as well.
