      Description

      Installing Moodle and Moodle doesnt currently have write permission to the data directory. I get the following php notice displayed.

      Notice: Undefined variable: a in /home/andrew/Desktop/review/moodle/install.php on line 320
      Call Stack

      1. Time Memory Function Location
        1 0.0021 443200 {main}

        ( ) ../install.php:0

      Under the data directory text box is the following message:
      Data directory ({$a->dataroot}) cannot be created by the installer.

      The $a isnt being substituted.
