Installing Moodle on Ubuntu.....
Currently run Moodle on a WAMP server and it works well, but there are a couple of modules (particularly the one the allows access to students home folders through Moodle) that we'd like to use that require Moodle to be running on a LAMP box.
So thought I'd have a play with setting up a Moodle install on an Ubuntu vm. Got Ubuntu Server install (version 9. something), told it set up the system as a LAMP server when it asked. Told it that the webpages served by Apache should be seen by other PCs not just the localhost
Installed Moodle using sudo apt-get install moodle and it appeared to install that fine.
I can browse to //localhost/ on the Ubuntu server and see the IT WORKS! page and I can browse to the IP from other PCs and see the IT WORKS! page so Apache seems to be working.
I can't however see anything other than a blank page when browsing to //localhost/moodle or //localhost/moodle/admin (don't get an error page 404 etc, just a blank page)
I installed GNOME to have a look around the directory and found the Moodle files and been installed in USR/SHARE not VAR/WWW/MOODLE where I would have expected them so created a folder there, copied the moodle files to it and CHMOD 777 the VAR/WWW/MOODLE folder.
As this is my first time with Linux I'm a bit stuck, and not sure what I've done wrong. PHP seems to be installed, don't know about MySQL, but it seems odd that I can't open //localhost/moodle/index.php at all from the browser.
Can anyone with any experience of setting up Moodle on Ubuntu help please?
