    Hi,

    I have installed Moodle on a windows computer just to have a quick play around. Only problem now is when trying to access moodle from another pc on the network it says



    Works ok using localhost on the computer but not by typing in the ip of the host from another computer. Has anyone else had this problem??

    I am not that familiar with version 2, but have you checked the CFG->wwwroot variable in the config.php file, it should be in the root moodle directory. I know if it points to localhost it used to cause problems with 1.9

    I usually make sure I have an A record on a DNS server for my moodle server and then just set the variable to point to the DNS name. You can just put the IP address of the server in there if you haven't got a DNS record setup.

    If you are still having problems there are some entries in the Moodle forums about this very error message.

    Good luck.

    Thats excellent, thank-you works a charm.

    Still, it doesn't achieve much as its only installed on a desktop pc on our network with an internal ip. We still need it setup so that it can be accessed externally aswel. I just can't get my head around installing it on a server!

    if you want to run Linux but don't want to install moodle have a look at http://www.turnkeylinux.org/moodle it has ubuntu and moodle all built in and takes 5 Min to install on a hyper-v PC. most of my server run like this small foot print and fast installs.
    i have Squid server , VPN server , Mail Server All with NTLM setup for AD

    Yep.. just ubunti and moodle all in one .. just do a apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    and your dun.. the SSO and the LDAP Server works sweet... so its easy to bind in to your Win AD for authenication.

    Bart21 kindly helped me install Moodle 2.0 on ubantu and we are now up and running!!

    However, it only works internally. We want to give external access to our teachers & Pupils. I have contacted our local council to create us a domain pointing to the ubantu server but they are reporting it may be difficault to create a .sch.uk address as they are restricted via Nominet? We wanted something like most other schools in the format www.moodle.schoolname.sch.uk

    I'm guessing this is all we need to do to use moodle externally?
