I need to run Moodle on my Mac over https. I installed Moodle4Mac and Moodle worked fine on localhost:8888/moodle35. I then installed certificate following steps here: https://really-simple-ssl.com/knowledge-base/how-to-install-an-ssl-certificate-on-mamp/
The certificate was installed okay because the MAMP homepage runs over https no problem e.g. https://localhost/MAMP/. However Moodle does not load (neither with or without https). I changed the Moodle config.php $CFG->wwwroot = 'https://localhost:8888/moodle35' as it is stated this should be done in the Moodle docs but the connection is still rejected.
Does anyone know what the problem may be here?
