Hmm, I'm not using Opensuse.. But according to Opensuse's Lifetime page support for Opensuse 11.3 has ended 2,5 years ago. It looks like you have to upgrade to a later version of Opensuse.

Yep, my humble thought exactly...
However, I dont know the full story, but this does really illustrate what good system management is about
To keep a system unupdated for this long either means: you just "found" the system (inherited it at work?) or did an install from a pretty old medium...
Updates allow you to keep your system safe from the big bad outside...if you "inherited" it at work, the previous "guardian" did'nt really di his job hehe
I'd strongly recommend making this a weekly chore, or - even better - set up a cron job to manage that for you
Welcome to the forum, where there'll always be someone to help out
PS - try to be a bit more creative with your titles helps us find you easier

Did you just recently install your distribution? How much do you have to lose? I highly recommend you update to the latest version of SuSE if at all possible because it will make the newer versions of Moodle, PHP, etc. easier for you as well.

To upgrade your OS, try following the instructions here. I realize that you don't have SuSE version 12.3, but I think that it should still work, just be sure to follow the text that applies specifically to those with older versions.
