As test I created a html file in the html directory & it is presented in browser, so web service looks to be running fine.


Your librenms setup could not connect to the mariadb SQL database. You may need to modify the database settings in the .env file.

If you want you can post your .env file here, that may help. Note: there are passphrases in that file you need to remove before posting!

A first first test is to connect via the command line to the mariadb/SQL server

sudo mysql -u librenms -p

Then enter the librenms passphrase you setup.
