cant access confluence after install

Hi after installing confluence the install program asks if I want to open it in the browser. I click YES but it won't open

I get : ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

I have added the port in inbound rules but that shouldn't really affect localhost calls

I tried to temporaily disable the firewall without any luck

 

I recently installet Bitbucket and it worked with localhost:7090 without problems

When you install confluence it will open up on localhost:[port goes here] but i assume you did not install it on your local machine, so attempting to connect to it on localhost would only get your browser to try to connect to your own machine. If you installed it on a machine called server1.yourcompany.com the address to it would be http://server1.yourcompany.com:[port goes here] Think the default port is 8080 for Confluence, but i am not sure. You can find this in the server.xml file on the server you installed it on.

I did actually install it on my local machine.
The installation seemed to be all done and the service started. At the end you get the question if you want to open confluence in your browser and i directs you to it. (localhost:8090)
