I'm installing Moodle 1.9.9 on FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE i386, so far I have got the basic system running with; apache-2.2.17_1, mysql-server-5.0.90_2 (+created a database for moodle) and php5-5.3.3_2, I can connect to the box from another machine and get the "it works" from apache. Also phpinfo works, I get all the php info in a web browser. So I went on and started the Moodle installer moodle-1.9.9 (make install clean) on the Freebsd machine. But the installer stops when trying to configure or install curl (php5-curl-5.3.3_2), see text file. The error message says: "curl-7.21.1 may only use GNU TLS if OpenSSL support is disabled. *** Error code 1". I'm litte lost what to do next, how can I disable OpenSSL.

Just a guess, but check the advice on this page:

Do you need gnutls at all?
OpenSSL is in base system to provide same functionality.

gheist: the Moodle installer wants to use gnutls when it tried to install curl, doing make-install-clean in moodle diectory. I don't need gnutls.  OpenSSL is installed, found it in usr/bin/openssl, it starts and works fine (says OpenSSL 0.9.8e 23 Feb 2007).  I want to try it disable gnutls to find out if that works. How can I do that? When I do make-config in in /usr/ports/www/moodle/ -  I don't get any gnutls option (see screenshot-1.jpg), also when I do make-config in /usr/ports/lang/php5 - I don't see any gnutls option (see screenshot-2.jpg).

moodle2#

its seem that "curl.6 library" is missing, can that be the problem?

you need to remove gnutls before build apparently and fill a bug report for port.

or install curl using sysinstall (that will be built without gnutls support)

install packages via sysinstall, that saves a lot of time.
