Hi,

I am just unable to find my Splunk enterprise login page at all. Could I get some assistance with this or a link to the login page?

Thank you.

@OlaideO Using the terminal window navigate to the folder where you have installed Splunk. By default /Applications/Splunk

Then open bin folder and try to start Splunk with sudo.

sudo ./splunk/start

[Will ask you system login PWD]

If your Splunk instance comes up fine you should get localhost:8000 as the url to access Splunk from front-end. If not you will have to let us know what error you see. Also if splunkd log has any error logged.

Did you install Splunk enterprise on your PC?

If yes, if you are first time accessing Splunk, 

The splunk web is available at http://localhost:8000 if service is running.

if service is not running, you will not see splunk web page loading.

you should start splunk service if its not running already.

Find below link useful to start and stop splunk service.

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.5/Admin/StartSplunk

@OlaideO what kind of instance is this, personal use, dev, prod? Which OS is Splunk installed on?

If you try to start splunk service yourself what kind of errors you see. Have you tried with sudo if this is *nix OS?

@niketn-deceased to explain the best i can. Im a new user and im trying to complete the module labs. I got the splunk enterprise 30 day trial. Using links like http://localhost:8000 or even the regular login, im receiving errors like the site can not be reached. Im using a Mac Catalina OS
