    Moodle help

    Hi

    I have managed to setup Moodle 1.8.2 using WAMP on a Windows 2003 Server machine.

    How do I now get access to it from other machines in the school.

    the local address is //localhost/moodle

    Re: Moodle help

    You need to change the Apache httpd.conf (WAMP icon > Config files > httpd.conf) file around line 204 to something like this:

    Code:
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all
    Look up the Apache documentation if you want to restrict this to a subnet or such.

    Re: Moodle help

    still not working

    the name of the server that moodle is installed on is moodleserver

    so i take it all i need to do is open IE and type in

    moodleserver/moodle

    is this correct?

    Re: Moodle help

    Yep, that should work.

    What error message(s) are other netwprk machines getting when they try to browse to http://moodleserver/moodle? Can other machines ping 'moddleserver' and get a reply? If not it could be that the moodleserver is not in the DNS. It's also worth checking the Apache access/error logs.

    Re: Moodle help

    Try using the server IP number in place of the server name, as this will bypass DNS, and show if it's a problem with the webserver or DNS.

    Re: Moodle help

    Hi

    I can ping the server and remote desktop to it as well, but I just can't get access to the bloody moodle on any other computer, what am I doing wrong?

    Is there a setting somewhere I have not checked?

    Re: Moodle help

    make sure you've run the apache and mysql batch files, then type in the server name into IE and you should be ok

    Re: Moodle help

    From the other machines: Can you access the main WAMP page, eg by browsing to http://servername/ or http://ip.address.of.server?

    @webman

    No I can't, I have just tried creating a hello.html file in the www root folder of the wamp folder, gone to another machine, opened up a web browser typed in the ip address/moodle and still cant access nothing.

    Re: Moodle help

    What exactly is coming up then when you try to access it?

    What is the IP configuration of the network/moodle server/clients?
