    Access Home Directories through Moodle on WAMP

    Does anyone know of a realtively simple way for Moodle users to be able to access their Home Directories through Moodle when it is set up on a WAMP box (Windows 2003, Apache, MySQL, PHP).

    I know it can be done an a LAMP box, but as I have no linux experience (and my attempts at setting Moodle on a LAMP box failed miserably) then we'd like to use what we already have.

    Thanks in advance
    Adrian

    Could you mount each user's Home Directory in a sub-folder of their Moodle folder? Or even make their Moodle folder their Home Directory?

    Hmmm. Its a thought. Although it would mean altering the way home folders are set up completely. Currently they are created the first time a user logs on to the domain via GPOs (Redirection of My Documents) and then the home folder for that user is just a mapped drive to the same place (useful to have a UNC version and a drive letter version of their folder - some software just works better one way or the other).

    Could you just have a script that runs periodically to check that the list of usernames in Active Directory matches up with the folder names in your home folder?
