I am a REAL Ubunto newbie so please be gentle
I am trying to set up a new moodle environment and after some advice in a different forum, I am using separate Web and SQL servers.
So far I have identical Ubuntu 18.04 servers setup, I have followed various tutorial and walkthroughs but I am now stuck. I have managed to get to the pint where I can load the initial moodle setup webpage but keep getting an "Error: Database connection failed"
I have checked in the moodle folder on the webserver and I don't have a config.php, just a config-dist.php. Could this be the problem?
