Moodle - when opening a MS Word doc in moodle I get a Windows Security popup
A bit of a long story - sorry - I will get to the point but some history may help..
We are running Moodle 1.98 on an Ubuntu server.. this ran out of space so I moved the moodledata folder to another server and mounted the share - I entered the path to that in the config.php
Afeter that move - the sessions weren't working right and any attempted login gave the 'cookies must be enabled' warning and failed.. I checked permissions and gave 777 on the sessions folder, but no luck!
In the moodle config.php - I added the line
$CFG->respectsessionsettings = true;
and users could again login..
unfortunately when users attempt to open a Word document (but not PDF) from within the moodle site they get a popup 'Windows Security' asking for credentials, if this is cancelled, the document opens..
I did manage to stop that happening by adding the line
$CFG->usesid = true;
as the last line of config.php before the ?>
However that introduced another error that going to the moodle.oursite.org logon page gives a 500 Server error - but the site is visible after a reload/refresh..
Any suggestions how I may get rid of the annoying windows security popup?
