No system console access

#1

I set up a mattermost server (5.10 on CentOS 6). Going to port 8065 everything seemed fine.

Then I went into the System Console and turned on TLS on port 443.

Restarted mattermost server process. I can still get in as a user, but my user can no longer see System Console.

In the database:

Roles: system_admin system_user

I tried creating another user:

sudo ./mattermost user create --email REDACTED --username guru --password REDACTED --system_admin

This user can also log in ; but, cannot see the System Console.

His roles:

Roles: system_user system_admin

Any ideas?

Thank you for your time!

Hi @wwalker,

Wondering if this previous thread might help: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#configuration.

Also, what is your SiteURL set to (https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#configuration)?

Hi Amy,

The config looks good, and works (as in the site works, just I get no SystemConsole)

https://mattermost.bybent.com/

I also get this:

Please check connection, Mattermost unreachable. If issue persists, ask administrator to check WebSocket port.

I’m using mattermost without a front end. mattermost is listening on 443, so all connections are direct.

Hi @wwalker,

Wondering if this troubleshooting doc might help: https://docs.mattermost.com/install/troubleshooting.html#please-check-connection-mattermost-unreachable-if-issue-persists-ask-administrator-to-check-websocket-port?
