Problem reaching Globalleaks after install


#1

Hello,
This is my second installation.
First installation for testing went well in Ubuntu 18.0.4 Desktop.
My second installation run into problem in a new VPS server with OS Ubuntu 16.0.4 + Plesk Oynx.
When I try my ip http://162.255.84.137:8082/#/wizard with firefox and Tor both browser resulted with timeout. Is Plesk causing timeout?
Here is my installation:

Hello,

from where did you found the link with the :8082 port?
That’s meant to be used only internally to GlobaLeaks software.

Does reaching it with http://162.255.84.137 works?

Btw i suggest to reinstall on a Ubuntu 18.04 LTS that’s the new supported platform, entirely running on Python3.

Waiting for yours, let us know

Hello,

After re-installed Ubuntu 18.0.4 LTS and install Globaleaks again this is what I have:

    Ouch! The installation is complete but GlobaLeaks failed to start.

I noticed when I login to 162.255.84.137:
The Apache page appeared
Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) Server at 162.255.84.137 Port 80

Please help! Thanks

Hello,
Reinstall Ubuntu 18.0.4 LTS again but this time just install minimum package without the all features from my server provider.
Install Globaleaks and login my ip address:
Successful!
Thank you for all your support
