I am exploring various backup solutions for some servers for the small company and running into an issue post installation with duplicati, it installs no errors and then thats it. Comes up with the icon in red with the X, then the URL. http://localhost:8200/index.html (in IE11) with a blank page.
Dev server that I use:
OS: Win Server 2008R2 SP1 x64
Plenty of RAM (32GB) and hard drive space (40G free OS drive + 8TB for storage (where the backups would go if I could ever get this working).
VC C++ Redist 2015, .NET 4.5.1
Windows Firewall is off (behind corporate firewall)
Duplicati version 22.214.171.124 x64 msi. I tried with beta 126.96.36.199 but that had same problem (removed and cleaned up before installing 188.8.131.52).
Tried from another PC to the IP http://10.0.0.80:8200/index.html (example IP) and comes back with “unable to connect”. Opening the file directly from C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2\webroot\index.html displays same blank page. Opening login.html does display a simple login but no idea what the default password should be since it never came up for the initial post-install setup.
Does this need the IIS or Apache to be installed and running? If so there was no mention of this in the prerequisites. Event viewer comes back with no errors. Based on what I am seeing from the desktop attempting to access it is equivalent of no Apache running.
