Hung up during Graylog installation

I’ve made it successfully through most of the instructions to install Graylog on Centos 7 but when I get to this step the browser gives the error: refused to connect.

Here’s the part of the instructions I was following, replacing my droplet’s IP address for the placeholder: http://graylog_public_IP:9000/

I’m not sure if this would affect it or not but I do have Nginx and ghost installed on this machine with two virtual hosts, one using ghost and other just ordinary /var/www/html with HTML files and so on. I’m not sure if that’s relevant to this situation or not.

  • Just to clarify, you’re talking about this guide?
    Have you opened the firewall to allow port 9000 ?

    In this tutorial, we will cover how to install Graylog v1.3.x (sometimes referred to as Graylog2) on CentOS 7, and configure it to gather the syslogs of your systems in a centralized location. Graylog is a powerful log management and analysis tool that has many use cases, from monitoring SSH logins and unusual activity to debugging applications. It is based on Elasticsearch, Java, and MongoDB.
  • Yes, those instructions and no I didn’t touch the firewall. I’m sure that’s it. Thank you!!
