Why is splunkd no longer working and displays 500 Internal Error after updating the IP from docs?

Path Finder

Unless I missed something here, I changed the splunk-launch.conf to append with SPLUNK_BINDIP and web.conf with the mgmtHostPort, but I am getting an unusual message upon logon below:

500 Internal Server Error

I ran into a similar issue however the culprit was Active Directory LDAP authentication - service account was locked out. Once unlocked I was able to log in with no 500 Internal Error being displayed.
