On a new install, I am getting a 500 Internal Server Error immediately after logging into my external IP address at port 8000 over http. Once that happens, Splunk errors out, and I can't try to log in again until I restart Splunk. But when I check ./splunk status it appears to be fine. This is on a fresh Ubuntu 16 server on a VPS. I have tried all the reasonably applicable solutions posted here with no success. Any suggestions?
I changed it from: [mgmtHostPort = 127.0.0.1:8089] to the external IP address, with no change. Is there something special that must be done to access the web interface remotely as opposed to via localhost, which appears to be the default configuration?
