    1. Thomas – Sorry for the issues with the Moodle applications. Without more details on your installation, it is not possible for us to troubleshoot it without guessing at the possible problems. I would advise contacting Moodle’s community or support team directly for assistance. You would be able to get help from people who regularly use the application (and may have seen your problem) or with the development team of the application.
