Blank screen on trying to launch WebUI


#1

I have launched WebUI which is hosted in a linux server. The WebUI launches with a blank screen. I am using 6.0.2 version of ConfD. The error that I see in the debugging tool is " Uncaught syntax error" in index.js. Though the code seems to be fine, the screen is blank.


#2

Are you able to successfully run the WebUI example under the examples.confd/webui/basic directory?

Can you share your code that is generating the “Uncaught syntax error”?


#3

I am trying to run the example in confd/webui/example directory

SyntaxError: expected expression, got ‘<’ index.js:1:0


#4

What kind of Web browser and its version are you running?


#5

I am using Firefox 41.0.2. This happens with IE 8 as well with a syntax error on the same line.


#6

Perhaps you can try the login page directly?

http://127.0.0.1:8008/login.html

Or using the curl tool,

$ curl 127.0.0.1:8008/login.html

I have tried the login.html directly. ConfD 6.0.2 has a different login.html. The error that I see in the Firefox debugging console is SyntaxError: expected expression, got ‘<’ index.js:1:0 which shows

`<!doctype html>

...... `

My reply was from testing with ConfD 6.0.2 running the $CONFD_DIR/examples.confd/webui/basic example that comes with ConfD 6.0.2.
Can you provide your output from running the curl tool as I suggested?
Thanks
