Disable the Web interface for add-on installation

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

NOTE: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

To hide this option from the admin web interface, edit the Moodle(TM) LMS configuration file and set:

$CFG->disableupdateautodeploy = true;

NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the Moodle LMS configuration file will be located in the following paths:

  • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): installdir/moodle/config.php

  • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): installdir/apps/moodle/htdocs/config.php
