I was using the free version of splunk to get the fundamentals 1 cert. i Paused to take a break and when i came back i was unable to get back to splunk using localhost:8000 and it keeps saying "site cant be reach. localhost refused to connect." Im using Google chrome and win 10. I was able to uninstall and reinstall. It worked again all the way up until i took a break to do something else. I tried to login and was unable too. Ive tried all sorts of ways ive found though answers.splunk but Im not getting anywhere or not know exactly what im doing wrong. Thanks!
Check the Splunk status or Restart Splunk.
Since you are using Windows, you can follow the steps below:
Open a Command Prompt and run it as Administrator
Change the directory and navigate to Splunk bin folder:
cd "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin"
Check Splunk Status
Did you check if splunk was up and running ?
Run the command splunk status inside bin directory of your splunk home directory.
If splunk was not running check for any errors on splunkd.log or crash*.log inside var/log/splunk/
I have not. I do not know how to get to the bin directory. Ive tried to look for maybe a file that would lead to it in the main Splunk file that you can access from file explore. I tried putting the info in through command prompts. I know im probably missing something extremely obvious, I just cant figure it out. I apologize about my inexperience. Im just starting to get into the deeper sides of computers.
