Getting started with the Moodle VPS template

Updated over a week ago

Moodle is a widely used open-source learning management system (LMS) that provides educators and learners with robust tools for online learning and collaboration. With Hostinger's Ubuntu 22.04 64bit with Moodle VPS template, setting up a Moodle environment is streamlined, as it comes with Moodle pre-installed. This guide will help you get started with Moodle on your VPS.

Accessing Moodle

Open a web browser and go to https://[your-VPS-hostname]/admin — make sure to replace [your-VPS-hostname] with the hostname of your VPS"

Logging into Moodle

Use admin as a username and the password you entered when installing the template.

If you want Moodle to run on your domain, point your domain to a VPS IP address, change the server hostname, and reinstall the template.

Configuring Moodle

Upon first access, Moodle will ask to change your admin account details:
