Apache ,SSl & https


im trying to play with moodle; normally with something built on PHP I just use XAMPP but thought i'd go with LAMPP at /var/www/htdocs this time.

Basically getting a web server up & running is a piece of cake with this still relevant guide:

http://slackware.ponce.cc/blog/2011/...ew-easy-steps/

sorted out mammal to fish requirement for MySQl tables but moodle will not install without web server using https. I can re-direct via .htaccess its just the keys & where they go. Most tutorials start with go to /etc/apche2 folder. There isn't one httpd.conf is at /etc/httpd/httpd.conf


Ponce's guide to LAMPP is nice none nerd simple,clear & concise guide.Anyone got something similar to being able to use https:/localhost/moodle with the web server ? Where the keys go what to edit

there's nothing concise with managing ssl certificate authorities and certificates, you should read a few docs: a good place to start, IMHO, is the slackwiki

Would this be a simpler way to set up moodle?

You might want to try letsencrypt client project.

AFAIK, moodle can work with HTTP protocol, although using HTTPS is more recommended.

Hi cheers
for replies i'm trying all possibilities the slackwiki didn't quite work but will retry - its going to take some reading up, to see why not

I have found getting a web on live host to get https going is no big since you've got hosting support , cpanel etc Guess that's why never delved past the surface before.

Could of course go to moodle & ask for a hack to use just use http since its only on local to evalaate ; no response on twitter so far.

The arch tgz didn't offer any advantages over the zip package; sine issue is MySQl Antelope to Barracude & getting web server to use https, SSL

I'm prepared to try letsencrypt even with an extensive deps list - but have you got somewhere on a blog a low learning curve ,not on how to use build scripts nor how to install sbopkg packages but an over view of its & outs of using it. IS it going to know that the web server I want it to work with is Apache at /var/www/htdocs & stick public & private keys in the right place etc

Also just noticed another error :

php_extension xmlrpc
should be installed and enabled for best results

The xmlrpc extension is needed for hub communication, and useful for web services and Moodle networking

That's included in Slackware Current, but not yet in stable so you need to rebuilt PHP for that module to be installed

Had a go at re-build


I got build script from : http://slackware.uk/salix/i486/slack.../source/n/php/

I put line
–with-xmlrpc=shared \

in section of php.SlackBuild :

CFLAGS=”$SLKCFLAGS” \
./configure \
–prefix=/usr \

......

ran & it came up with line 79 alpine.SlackBuild missing

Then downloaded alpine from http://slackware.uk/salix/i486/slack...urce/n/alpine/ at same level as php slackbuild dir

it built but moodle still moaning :
php_extension xmlrpc
should be installed and enabled for best results

The xmlrpc extension is needed for hub communication, and useful for web services and Moodle networking
