Safari can’t open the page “https://localhost:8888/moodle19/login/index.php” because Safari can’t establish a secure connection to the server “localhost”.
Does anybody know what I need to edit in the config files to not use https for login? This is only on my local computer & not to be accessible by the outside world.
To get your site running on localhost without https, you could try adding $CFG->loginhttps=''; to your config.php file. I think this should override the vale in your site settings.
I'm attempting to use the moodle appliance. I'm using it in virtualbox with a bridged connection. Everything works except I cannot login. It says it cannot establish a secure connection. I read up on how to disable HTTPS, but I cannot locate the config.php file. Where should I be looking for the turnkey appliance? It is NOT in /etc/moodle...in fact the directory does not even exist. I've found zero documentation on this....
I'm no moodle expert and not really sure which moodle appliance you are referring to, but mooodle does have a dependency on php, so the php.ini must be on that deployment somewhere, you can always try finding the file via -- sudo find / -name config.php or to see all php files do something like -- sudo find / -name *.php | less (this will let you page at a time to see if you find something like it).
If all else fails, provide link to the moodle appliance so I can try to assist further.
Hello, Dee. I understand all of that, and have actually tried searching for the config. I've set up quite a number of other servers with php dependencies. Not saying I'm an expert, I'm just saying this *should* have been way easier! Here is what I am using: http://www.turnkeylinux.org/moodle
Thank you so much for looking into this. I appreciate it!
I see debian amd64 from their manifest list:
https://wiki.debian.org/PHP/ (page says a work in progress)
Think you've some reading to do:
New/Better extensions manager
At some point between Sarge and Etch the PHP packages provide a new configuration layout. This new layout makes it easier for extensions to install their configuration files without having to modify the php.ini files.
One of the nice things about linux is you can build a system the way you want ... one of the bad things about linux is you can build a system the way you want. If one is not the builder, it's now a matter of sluthing or finding resources that will tell you.

Never used the turnkey installation you linked to, but I would have thought if that is not as easy as you would like, then - as you have set things up before - I would recommend setting up your linux, with Apache, MySQL and PHP yourself. There are a number of instructions on the net which show you how to do so with only a couple of commands (or alternatively there is the XAMPP solution). You can then install Moodle AND keep it upto date fairly easily using Git.
Or if you are normally a mac or Windows user, then the moodle downloads page has prebuilt installers including MAMP/WAMP
Chris, think you've kinda hijacked a forum thread (subject line says MAMP - which is an Apache/MySQL/PHP[perl/python] stack on MacOSX. While solutions might be similar, how one gets to a resolution is not the same - dependent on operating system.
Probably should have started your own thread with something like TurnKey Moodle - SSL as subject line.
Maybe this forum moderator would be so kind as to move these to a thread of it's own, but if not or can't, start a new one anyway! ;)
Turnkey downloads appear to be all Debian based appliances. But they do offer cloud based on Amazon it appears. Since you mentioned Virtualbox earlier, is the host OS MacOSX? running VirtualBox and you've a Debian based Moodle on a laptop?
Suggest starting a new thread and sharing some info.

Thanks for the assist. I appreciate it. To clarify, yes indeed I am using Mac OS X, though I do have a Windows solution available...though I'd rather not if at all possible. Personal preference. I suppose to do this up the "right" way I should configure a Linux machine. I'm simply testing the viability of the platform for a business purpose.
IMHO ... about the only thing the local version of Moodle can do is course design ... and even that would have limitations. For someone with absolutely no Moodle server administration, it does also (inadvertently) gives one insight into the PHP, Apache, and MySQL side of things (even though that's not the intent). Knowing that, MAMP would be ok for course design - probably not a good platform for development for a business purpose - depending upon many factors.

I tried the ovf template for a few hours and never got past the loading initram stage on boot sequence. I will try to use the iso image and see if I can assist.
Here is what I've been able to find out...
Hmm, I sure do. During the past few days I've experimented with the Windows package Moodle offers. So far it works great, I just need to set up a mail server to handle messages. Thanks for much for the information, I'm still stumped, but at this point I'm not sure it's going to matter.
Thank you for posting the link, I had some issues with my ISP yesteday sO I was unable to DL the appliance. I should have some time today to see how it configures the environment. I will be using Virtualbox, but I'm not on a MAC platform....
Let's see what happens.
