Why do I recieve BUG: soft lockup kernel messages
Why do I recieve BUG: soft lockup kernel messages
Error messages similar to the following appear in the kernel message log:

kernel: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 10s! [events/0:50]
The CentOS/RHEL kernel has a default softlockup threshold of 10 seconds. This can sometimes be too low if the system is very busy with I/O.

We have also seen these messages on an idle system with a large core count. In this case it may be caused by a bug in the kernel when the CPU wakes up from an extended idle period.

The following Redhat knowledge base article has some additional information:


The problem can often be worked around by increasing the softlockup threshold to are larger value. For example:

echo 120 > /proc/sys/kernel/softlockup_thresh

Finally I successfully installed Moodle 3.3.2 in localhost using XAMPP.
I did clear all internet-browser cookies and cache and increase max_execution_time from 30 to 600

What a simple solution.!

mysql - Your password does not satisfy the current policy requirements - Stack Overflow
Because of your password. You can see password validate configuration metrics using SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'validate_password%'; in mysql or you can set the password policy level lower, for example :

SET GLOBAL validate_password_length = 6;
SET GLOBAL validate_password_number_count = 0;

How To Create a New User and Grant Permissions in MySQL | DigitalOcean
How To Create a New User and Grant Permissions in MySQL
PostedJune 12, 2012 3.5m views MYSQL

Etel Sverdlov
MySQL is an open-source database management software that helps users store, organize, and later retrieve data. It has a variety of options to grant specific users nuanced permissions within the tables and databases—this tutorial will give a short overview of a few of the many options.

What the Highlights Mean
Throughout this tutorial, any lines that the user needs to enter or customize will be highlighted! The rest should mostly be copy-and-pastable.

How to Create a New User
In Part 1 of the MySQL Tutorial, we did all of the editing in MySQL as the root user, with full access to all of the databases. However, in cases where more restrictions may be required, there are ways to create users with custom permissions.

Let’s start by making a new user within the MySQL shell:

CREATE USER 'newuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
Note: When adding users within the MySQL shell in this tutorial, we will specify the user’s host as localhost and not the server’s IP address. localhost is a hostname which means “this computer,” and MySQL treats this particular hostname specially: when a user with that host logs into MySQL it will attempt to connect to the local server by using a Unix socket file. Thus, localhost is typically used when you plan to connect by SSHing into your server or when you’re running the local mysql client to connect to the local MySQL server.

At this point newuser has no permissions to do anything with the databases. In fact, even if newuser tries to login (with the password, password), they will not be able to reach the MySQL shell.

Therefore, the first thing to do is to provide the user with access to the information they will need.

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'newuser'@'localhost';

Moodle in English: How to inject custom css and javascript to any moodle page
Re: How to inject custom css and javascript to any moodle page

Implement your plugin as a Block plugin.

You can set a block to appear on every page in Moodle (like the Navigation block).

The block gets called when the page is being output. The block does not have to appear as a block at the side of the page (except when editing is on) but it can inject some JS and CSS using $PAGE->requires->... after looking at $PAGE->pagetype, and other such properties, to work out what sort of page it is.

OSS Watch - Moodle: a case study in sustainability
In the latter half of 2006, the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) commissioned a study via its Teaching and Learning committee to examine the issues surrounding sustainability of open source software. The resulting report drew together seven case studies of successful but very different open source projects and examined each project's sustainability model. Each of these case studies has been told from the point of view of the lead developer or one of the key personnel and gives a fascinating insight into the factors that have determined the success of each project. These case studies are now presented by OSS Watch as stand alone documents in a series.
This case study, examining the Moodle project, has been written by Martin Dougiamas, Managing Director, Moodle Pty Ltd.
