Server is a WHS 2011


I install Drupal, wordpress and moodle from the MS Platform Installer in IIS manager.  Drupal and wordpress open fine within my home network and outside of it.


Moodle open fine outside of my home network, but won't open within it (not sure if beacuse it a https).


Can anybody help????????


Below are the message that appear when trying to open moodle within my home network

Yeah, sounds like a certificate issue, been ages since I toyed around with IIS. If your using https (and you should be if you're dealing with user passwords and/or private info) then you should really be using a signed certificate and SSL (among many other security features).

Info on how to setup an SSL cert in IIS:

Depending on how many users are going to be using whatever service your providing, and/or how serious its application is it would probably be worthwhile getting a web security pro to look over the setup.
