You should change/disable that location from public access until you have
Xerte installed.


Did you create the xerte database and user account in advance? I would
install Xerte into your Moodle database but may be mis-reading what you have


There's a recording of a previous Techdis Xerte Friday webinar which might
help linked from this page

Subject: [Xerte] Xerte Issue




I am in the process pf installing Xerte into our Moodle system.


I am on the My SQL Database creation page and it gives me an error when I
click next. The error is Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial
communication packet', system error: 111.

Creating MySQL Database Failed!


I have copied the contents of our original Moodle. I have created a sub
domain and put the copied contents into it. This allowed me to view moodle
into the newly created sub domain as well. Then I downloaded xerte online
toolkit, created a folder into the new sub domain (where moodle is
installed) and pasted the contents of xerte into it. I am able to go through
the first steps to install xerte but fails at the SQL creation page. I am
using the same database name, username and password of our original Moodle


Can you please assist me with this.
