I have setup Mahara on ubuntu successfully but I can only browse it on the localhost. When I try on another PC on the same LAN, the login windows comes up with a question mark and no login window. What am I doing wrong ? Please help.

Hi - If you set it up on localhost, and the wwwroot in the database is 'localhost', then you won't be able to browse it from a remote machine - that's pretty standard DNS behaviour Wink

What is the value of the 'wwwroot' field in the 'config' database table?
