Connection refused to server web page

I have installed the sea file server on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian stretch. I went through all the setup instructions.

The following doesn’t work:
After starting the services, you may open a web browser and type in

[…server IP address, port 8000]

you will be redirected to the Login page. Just enter the admin username and password.

I simply get a message that the connection was refused.

I’ve tried deleting everything and starting over - nothing works.

At this point I can’t use this application.

Thanks, that worked. I’m at a loss to understand why the developers expect me to know this.

I actually installed everything in /opt as root.

Indeed, that’s a bit sad. Which manual did you follow?

I can’t put links in these posts, but I simply followed the online manual for deploying.

I made some mention here, but nevertheless must be changed the online manual, to reflect the state of art.
