Ubuntu installation stuck in default apache page

Hi all, I am a student trying to install OOD onto a local cluster.

I am using Ubuntu 20.04 and I am following the instruction on the documentation. I am on the last step in this page where I browse to the server OOD is installed.

I am encountering the issue of seeing Apache default page instead of OOD dashboard. I have not changed anything in /etc/ood/config/ood_portal.yml and I simply browsed <OOD server’s IP>:80

Could anyone point out what I should do here?


Hello and welcome!

You may need to remove that port from the conf file that apache itself is configured to use.

On Ubuntu I think you can find this line and comment it out in somewhere in the /etc/apache2 directory. Best bet is to grep -r '80' /etc/apache2 and just see if anything is set to use that and if so, comment it out, and restart apache.

Thanks for the quick response.

I found the config file at /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf and commented like this and the default page no longer showed up. I think the initial problem is solved.

#<VirtualHost *:80>
        # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
        # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
        # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
        # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
        # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
        # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
        # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
        #ServerName www.example.com

        #ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        #DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
        # error, crit, alert, emerg.
        # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
        # modules, e.g.
        #LogLevel info ssl:warn

        #ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        #CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

        # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
        # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
        # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
        # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
        # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
        #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf
