Greetings. I have a fresh install of Mahara-1.2.3 on a Fedora 12 LAMP (Postgres, SELinux disabled). Accessing the site locally works fine. I have not created a virtual host as it's the only web service running. I have no issue connecting to the database via the LAN. However, when I attempt to access the site over my LAN I get a partial page. Basically it's white, with just text and links, with no CSS at all. Additionally the Login link is just text. This is my second run-through with this, and find this bewildering. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

 Many thanks

Hi Christian,

When you see that, It's usually an incorrectly specified wwwroot. You should edit the config.php file, and make sure $cfg->wwwroot is the same url you are using to access the site.  If there's a row in the config table of your database for wwwroot, fix that too (or you can just delete the row).

Thanks for your quick and useful reply. My confiig.php was fine. The fix was in Postgres. I initially deleted the row, which pointed to the localhost, with no change, so recreated the row. I then changed the value to be the actual IP of the server, and it seems fine now.

 Again, many thanks.
