    Moodle Help!! :(

    Hi All!

    Got a problem that is really doing my head in!

    Ive installed moodle with xampp (!) installed, and published the moodle via ISA Server 2006,

    I can access the site via *SCHOOLWEBSITE.co.uk/moodle*...which presents me with the installation page!..i get to the stage of setting up the database and that completes everything..A OK!

    ...When i get to the admin user setup page it says "403: Forbidden"..and the web address has changed *SCHOOLWEBSITE.co.uk/user/editadvanced.php...

    Which naturally is forbidden because its gone out of the /moodle directory!...WHAT AM I DOING WRONG!! ARGGGGH! lol Cheers Everyone!!

    @mmoseley:

    Are you making these changes via the config.php file by any chance?

    config.php should be in the moodle folder so something like xampp/htdocs/moodle/config.php

    Then look for the line
    $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://ip.address.of.server';
    It should either be just the IP address of your server or ip/moodle

    This doesnt really help your current situation but as you just setting it up, you may want to consider using a LAMP server instead. I only say this because we use a WAMP server like you and whenever we have a problem its so annoying looking for a solution because most of the time theres a solution on nix but hard work for one in windows. Thats my experience anyway.

    @mmoseley:

    How do you access the moodle vle from inside your network?
    From the URL bar inside your browser what do you type?
