When I try to connect to Splunk through http://localhost:8000/en-us/ but I get the message that the website cannot display the page, even though I could connect to Splunk through the same address, from the same location I get the notification that the website cannot display the page. Does someone know how to be able to reach Splunk again?
The other thing is it should be https://localhost/... not http:.
If you attempt http on an https service it will just close out.
Are you sure your Splunk is running on your desktop? I ask in both sense of that question - first is it installed on your desktop machine not some other host, and secondly if it is on your desktop, is it running or has it been stopped?
Yes we are running it on my desktop, not another host. How can we determine whether it has stopped? We did not receive a notification that it has crashed or anything.
I don't know much about windows. I think you'd need to look in the task manager at services.
Under Linux you would simply run
splunk status (as splunk, or with splunk in your executable path and as a user with appropriate system file permissions). Presumably the Windows implementation has a similar feature?
Is Splunk running? What operating system are you using?
We noticed that the port is already occupied, but we cannot change the port. Does someone know how to be able to start the lsof command in Splunk and kill that process? As we cannot put this command in anywhere so far.
I'm using Windows 7 64 bit, which is also the machine on where we installed the Splunk enterprise on, no other machine. How can I tell if Splunk stopped running as I cannot reach the loging page?
To start Splunk Enterprise, go to
C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin and type:
Then see if you can get to Splunk Web in your browser.
Although ideally you should check first that it isn't already running before trying to start it.
Oh, um, yes. Thanks. 🙂 Look for the splunkweb service running in Task Manager.
Out of interest, does
splunk status work on a Windows installation?
