Hi I was wondering if someone could give me a push in the right direction. I am a student who is potentially going to be employed to update the moodle site at my university. I have very minimal experience with php mysql and the likes but i do consider myself a fairly advanced computer user. Im currently running ubuntu 11.04 as my main desktop and would like to set it up to run as a local moodle server so i can play around with creating courses etc which i will likely be doing for my school in the future. I tried following the install instructions on the wiki and various tutorials around the web but did not have much luck. I am able to install moodle from the ubuntu software centre/synaptic and also download the LAMP packages. I seem to fail when I try to access http://localhost/moodle/install.php or any of the similar initial addresses. I simply get a 404 error from apache. I feel like its something very basic that I am missing, perhaps changing a config file to point apache in the right place?? I just cant for the life of me think of how to go about this. If anyone has experiencing setting up local moodle servers and thinks they could help I would be very grateful.
Thanks for your time!!
