Launch Splunk Web

After Splunk is running, you can launch the Web interface, Splunk Web. To learn more about Splunk Web, see:

To launch Splunk Web, navigate to:


Use the host and port you chose during installation.

The first time you log in to Splunk with an Enterprise license, login as the administrator you created at installation time.:
Username - admin
Password - <password>

Splunk Free does not have access controls, so you will not be prompted for login information.

You cannot access Splunk Free from a remote browser until you have edited $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/local/server.conf and set allowRemoteLogin to Always. If you are running Splunk Enterprise, remote login is disabled by default (set to requireSetPassword) for the admin user until you change the default password.
