    Downloading moodle to a LAMP server

    I am currently setting up a Ubuntu LAMP server to run moodle, Ubuntu is now installed and working and I see the apache test page if I browse to the IP of the server.
    However I’m having trouble downloading moodle I’m trying

    I edited /etc/resolv.conf and added my dns servers when I try wget it seems to resolve the address then I get the following
    Code:
    connecting to download.moodle.org¦70.84.5.50¦:80     Connection timed out
    We run a proxy server so it should be 8080 but I’m not sure how to change that. Could anyone point me in the right direction?

    The Ip its resolving is correct, and the server is up.

    Its not using your proxy server and i think thats the problem.

    Try setting the proxy variable:
    type:
    sudo export http_proxy="http://proxy.example.com:8080"

    where proxy.example.com is your proxy's FQDN, or IP address

    Then...
    sudo wget http://download.moodle.org/stable18/...-latest-18.tgz –proxy=on


    Good luck!
