Cant find page http://localhost/moodle.login.php
 

Installed on Windows XP workstation (which is also a client on a Microsoft small businees server 2003 network)

Appache 1.3.27

mysql 4.0.15

phpmyadmin 2.5.3

Have successfully installed moodle and can access the development site when logging on at the workstation. I can also access the moodle login page from any other workstation on our network, but on clicking on the login button, internet explorer fails to find the page

http://localhost/moodle.login.php

Any help for a this new none techie user will be appreciated.blush

David,

I can access

http://localhost/moodle/login/index.php

my problem is when clicking on the login button on this page. That is when I get the error

Cant find page http://localhost/moodle.login.php

Cheers

Hi Peter,

To the best of my knowledge there *isn't* a file called moodle.login.php.  Have a look in your config.php file.  You may find a . at the end of your wwwroot line that shouldn't be there.

Hi Peter,
I'm no expert myself but I believe that you can only connect to "localhost" when logged on to the computer running your webserver. 

You say that you can access the front page from another workstation; what URL do you type in when on this other workstation (if you use http://localhost/moodle/login.php it will look at itself and fail as it will not be running a webserver)?

If you type something along the lines of http://172.16.250.12/moodle/login.php then you will need to change the config.php file on your moodle server from localhost to 172.16.250.12 (use whatever IP address your server has been assigned in place of 172.1.250.12)

Hope this helps.

John
