I recently upgraded our server to version 2.15. At the same time, the server was converted to a secure one using https (which we needed to use WebWorK from Canvas via LTI without Canvas complaining about trying to connect to an insecure server).
Today I noticed that no math is being displayed in any of the problems. All that is shown is [math]. I found the recent thread at https://webwork.maa.org/moodle/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=4837 about Mathjax only working in the Library Browser. In our case it is not even working there.
I looked at the reference in the earlier thread to "Configure lighttpd to use SSL" in the file about installing 2.15 on a linux server and have followed those steps. But it talks about editing the conf file in the directory /etc/lighttpd, and we don't have such a directory, so now I'm stuck.
I cannot ask our (one and only) network person for help with this because he is swamped trying to get everything ready for our campus to go to entirely online teaching in a few weeks. So can anyone walk me through how to get Mathjax working on our system so that the math expressions are displayed.
If it helps, we are a small college so do not have lots of students using WeBWorK. I would estimate a total of less than 100, not all of whom would be using it simultaneously. I saw a remark that "The other option is to set thing up so that MathJax is served by apache2". Is that a viable option for us, and if so, how do I do that?
Thanks for any help.
