How to upload/restore larger courses in Moodle?

Sometimes it may not be possible to upload/restore a larger course in your Moodle directly through the admin area.

To avoid this issue, try uploading your course using your FTP client.

Follow the steps:

  • Establish an FTP connection;
  • Navigate to the corresponding course folder (e.g. /home/user/uploaddata/2 – each folder number corresponds to a certain course);
  • Upload the course backup archive in that folder using your FTP client;
  • Log in to Moodle as administrator;
  • Go to the corresponding course;
  • Go to “Restore”;
  • Navigate to the desired file and click “Restore”;
