We have an issue with splunkweb services unable to run them. Can anyone help resolving this error?

Splunk status:
Pid file "/opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/splunkd.pid" unreadable.: Permission denied
splunkd.pid file is unreadable.
splunkweb is not running.
Pid file "/opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/splunkd.pid" unreadable.: Permission denied

I bet Splunk is started by root. You should check that out

%SPLUNK/bin

Try running this as the actual user running Splunk. Sounds like you have a "we'd prefer to run as user but Splunk got started as 'root'" situation.

No it seems splunk has not started successfully. Check the ./splunk status. Verify the splunkd.log file for any error that your are getting.

i have verified splunkd.log , i cant find any error related with host and check whether ports are listening or not every where i can see
splunkd 3567 root 4u IPv4 2234532 0t0 TCP *:8089 (LISTEN)

and i check ./splunk status

splunkd is running (PID: 3567).
splunk helpers are running (PIDs: 3568).
splunkweb is running (PID: 3632).

still unable to understand why i cant get into the page
