Cannot connect to localhost:8095

I have unzipped the crowd folders into a directory, and have changed the crowd-init.properties to indicate where I want the Crowd Home directory (which is not the same as the installation directory). I click start-service.bat, and the cmd window flashes up. Despite these, when I try to connect to localhost:8095, I cannot.

I am using IE9, and installing Crowd on a remote server, connecting with Remote Desktop.

I believe the issue was that I did not run the start_service.bat as an administrator, so there was nothing to access at http://localhost:8095

Just clicking on the batch file even if you run as administrator just does not work for me. What I have to do is open a cmd prompt as administrator. Then start the batch from the command line. This works on windows 7 ultimate 32-bit.

The crowd command window will open and stay opened until you run the stop batch.

This was my solution as well. I'm running this on Server 2016.

That would definitly do it!

Are you acccessing the "localhost" from within the remote desktop session, or from your workstation? You may need to swap "localhost" with the ip address of your server.

Hi, can you post the full URL you are trying to access? Although Chrome and Firefox inserts this for you, sometimes in IE when you do localhost:8095, it doesn't add http:// to the front and causes issues. Ensure you are accessing it via http://localhost:8095.

I'm afraid the answer to that is "read the logs". There's not a lot we can help you with unless you can read the logs....

I am not sure, how do I check that?

are there any exceptions in the logs ?
