Moodle Issues

I have a Moodle site that seems to hang after login.  I have transfered the site to 3 different servers including different hosting companies and still have the same issue.

It seems to be a database related issue.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What makes you suspect it is a database related issue?  Anyway try to observe the logs (apache, mysql, etc) as you try to log in.  Suggest you also try to replicate the setup in a local environment.

when you say that you have tried it from 3 different server with different hosting companies deos that mean that you have deployed the Moodle on all 3 or you were trying to access the same Moodle instance with different server.
there are few things you can check:

1. when you login what happens next,, page tries to load and load but never reaches to the "My Moodle" or Home page?
2. does it showing any error in the apache, mysql or in the wbepage itself.
3. You can verify if you are able to login to MySQL DB from your web server using the username, password mentioned in "config.php" under moodle folder.
4. you can also enable "Debugging" to see the errors. you can directly access the debugging page via "http://yourmoodleserver.com/admin/setting.php?section=debugging. Debuging can be enabled via "config.php" as well. you can add these 2 line in config.php to enable debuging.
    $CFG->debug = 2047;
    $CFG->debugdisplay = 1;
We might be able to help more if we can see the erros it is throwing. hope this helps

1.  It takes a really long time to get to the Home page (if it ever gets there)

4. I have enabled debugging and below is what I get:

Can you please mention the following:

1. Moodle version
2. OS and Version
3. DB Type and Version
4. I hope you are able to connect to DB from your Moodle Server.
5. Did you upgrade to the version or this is a new installation ?

I would suggest you to upgrade or if New installation then install Moodle 2.1. Build (20117101). This is latest stable version which I am using in our production environment.

Also I searched and found that something related to this has been reported to Moodle with affected version Moodle 2.0:

http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-17817?page=com.atlassian.streams.streams-jira-plugin%3Aactivity-stream-issue-tab#issue-tabs

Please let me know the findings.
