My problem is that when I connect to the "moodle server" from a remote machine and try to login, I get a message "connection was refused when attempting to contact 127.0.0.1:8081"
Why is my moodle server not using the ip address of the computer?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It would be nice if you tell us all anyhow, what you did. These forums are a great source of info for beginners and experts alike. For example there could be lots of people you don't know that 127.0.0.0 is by convention the IP address reserved for the local machine. (i.e. The PC Moodle is installed on)
That's why it didn't work from your remote PC I assume?
