Hi,
After you try the solutions specified by dkeck and if your splunk is running after seeing the splunk status, then after restarting just check that splunk is available on which port.
- Default splunk web port is 8000. Check the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/web.conf for port settings:
mgmtHostPort = 127.0.0.1:8089
httpport = 8000

  • Run the following command: ./splunk show web-port ./splunk show splunkd-port
  • You can also check if port 8000 is already use by some other application

Hey @vazid 

did you enabled the port 8000 in the security groups in AWS its seems the issue is more at AWS side and not on splunk

Hi,

did you secure your splunk web? than you will need https:// infront.

do you have access to the server splunk is running on?

If so check splunk is actually running. Log into your CLI and in $SPLUNK_HOME/splunk/bin type ./splunk status.

If its running, try a restart ./splunk restart and see if there are any errors in the start up.
