Installation of h5p on Moodle MAMP (Mac)
Submitted by nickgriches on Fri, 06/29/2018 - 13:57
I'm new to h5p. I'm testing it out offline on a mac using 'MAMP' (Moodle installation). I can't seem to install h5p. I download the package (as a zip file) from the moodle website. Then within Moodle, I go to Administration > Install Addons. I locate the file, and press upload, but it doesn't install. I get to a screen which says 'Moodle 3.5 - Install plugin from ZIP file - Validating mod_hvp...' but the installation does not get any further than this. I have managed to install a different package on Moodle, so it looks as if there is nothing wrong with my MAMP installation.
Any pointers welcome!

Hi. I re-downloaded the h5p package, and now I can install. Obviously something happened with the initial download. Hooray!

Same problem here: stalls
Same problem here: stalls while validating. I have MAMP 3.4 installed and the H5P zip is "mod_hvp_moodle35_2018053100.zip". Is there a 3.4 specific plugin package that I need?

Same Issue with MAMP 3.4
I'm having the same issue, stalling during validation. I have MAMP 3.4 installed and the downloaded plugin zip is "mod_hvp_moodle35_2018053100.zip". Is there a 3.4 plug in version that I need?

Hi Chris,Since you are you
Since you are you using an old version of MAMP can you please check if the PHP version is 5.2 or higher. If so please provide the following:

I've had the same problem for several hours, I changed max_execution_time in php.ini to 60 seconds (from 30), and now its worked fine.
