Dear Stefano,

I have reinstalled it but this is not the proper solution right if i do mistake in configuring then everything will go right. Any other method to resolve this problem. Or is the problem because we are using the amazon ec2

Errors like yours point to a wrong configuration of your Splunk instance.
Try, like the other user, to reinstall it and change one configuration file at a time to see what's causing this mess.

Regards,
Stefano
