Synology's new DSM 7 has removed the Moodle package. I'm curious if there is a new package in development for DSM 7. I know I can load Moodle from docker, but I'd rather have a dedicated app.
You run Docker on Synology? Well, that will be convenient, now a couple of Docker images appear on Docker hub: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/search.php?id=5&subject=docker. I have no Synology anymore, sorry.
Lets hope that someone can get us into Synology DSM 7. I kinda regret upgrading to 7.0. I miss my Moodle which I always used as a sandbox for my educational projects.
"... I always used as a sandbox for my educational projects." me too, always, as well, I've often used it to test plugins I've never used before, as well as update/upgrade tests, see if I can break my Moodle then repair it. This means I always look good when updating the now two Moodles for a couple of volunteer organisations, things always seem to go real smooth. I used to have a third Moodle to admin, but that was a different installation, so I kept it separate.
I don't think that Synology will drop support for Apache, PHP or MariaDB anytime soon, so if you can install those packages, then, using Putty, log in to your DSM as root, or whomever you have set up as your main Admin, switch to SU mode and you can install Moodle manually. As I said above, I have not trusted the Synology Moodle package, it wasn't up to it for me, so I worked out I could install and access my own Moodles using Putty and Vi, mainly, and being a superUser. This gives me control over the environment, the packages, the Moodles.
I'll stick to DSM 6
I should have done the same. I agree if you NEED Moodle do not upgrade to DSM7. Moodle was one of the reasons I bought Synology
You don't need any Synology Package for moodle, just run a docker image on you new Synology DSM 7+
Here's the link to the well maintained Docker image.
Good thing about Docker images: You can run them everywhere so you'll never have to depend on Synology package.
