This is for XAMPP. Can I follow the instruction for WAMP as well? And I can download Moodle for XAMPP for WAMP as well?

Hi,
You many use WAMP or XAMPP, both are almost the same. Maybe you would like to try Moodle Packages for Windows too, it's easier to apply.

1. WAMP/XAMPP+Moodle installation:

2. Moodle packages for windows: http://download.moodle.org/windows/ 
   Just follow the screen instructions.

Detail installation guide: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Installing_AMP#Windows

Regards

You're welcome!
You need the Generic Packages for WAMP.

I have installed Moodle 1.9.5 on a wamp server and everything works well locally but when I try to access the content from a client computer, all my information is skewed to the left. Is this a .php problem or a browser problem?Any pointers will help. Thanks!

Usually when the page does not display correctly over the network, there is an issue with php, buit not what you are thinking. The client machine is not properly addressing the Moodle so the server and the php cannot do the job they are supposed to.

Usually there is a simple fix, but sometimes there is not. So start with the simplest:

In your text editor, not Notepad btw, but TextPad or Notepad++ both of which are freely downloadable, but Notepad++ is the right price, open the drive:\yourpathtomoodle\moodle\config.php file. Look for the line

$CFG->wwwroot = 'localhost';

Replace it with your network url so it reads something like:

$CFG->wwwroot = 'http://192.168.1.109/moodle';

Save and close it, then try it, this should work.

If not, then there is another reason, with a different solution.

Hi Colin and all,

I installed moodle properly.

It works fine with 'LocalHost'.

 

But, i want to use it in LAN.

So i have made change in 'config.php'

$CFG->wwwroot = 'http://192.168.1.10/sun22';    [ sun22 is my moodle]

But it can't work

It says

403 forbidden

'You don't have permission to access /sun22 on this server.


Colin,

My WAMP server can't open with IP address.

It is OK with 'Localhost'


Plz. assist.

TIA.

Ravi
