Ooops Page not found when I login


For some reason I cannot access Splunk home page when login. I have Googled to find answer on it, but so far without any success. I could of cource be a missing file/folder or wrong file permisssion/owner.

So I Wonder following:
Is it possible to run an Upgrade from 7.1 to 8.0. Hopefully the missing home page will be restored.
Or do someone seen it before. and can give me some hints

check on the affected searchhead if following file exists:


If it doesn't exist copy the default.xml from another app into the directory and check if the problem still exists.

What is the splunk setup you are using, cloud instance or standalone splunk enterprise?
I assume its standalon splunk enterprise instance. If so usually you can open the splunk login page @ http://localhost:8000/ if you are giving some other url , it may give this message. if not localhost you should give your server name or the ip address. if you have enabled ssl you may have to give https. Was it a new installation? or this started after you did some upgrade or something?
