First of all you should not be modifying the files present in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default location which is shipped by SPLUNK. If you want to modify them, please create a new .conf file in either $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local or $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps//local directory with your setting.

Please check splunkd.log and see if you are getting any error there. It appears to me you have modified some settings in web.conf file in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default which might be causing this issue.
