Mark-logic Server Install – Getting access denied 302 for server install page

I have installed MarkLogic server 10.0-2.1x86_64 on CentOS and corresponding converters as per the documentation. It is a fresh install, and my only aim is to proceed with configuring the server. MarkLogic server runs with status OK and there are no errors in ErrorLog.txt. Also, ports 8000,8001, 8002. 7999,7998 and 7997 are open and have nothing else running on them

However, when I access localhost:8001 the response is HTTP code 302.

This is what is in my 8001_AccessLog.txt

::1 - - [04/Nov/2019:13:11:12 +0530] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 302 0 - "curl/7.29.0"

And the request I make is:

[root@root Logs]# curl -v http://localhost:8001

* About to connect() to localhost port 8001 (#0)
*   Trying ::1...
* Connected to localhost (::1) port 8001 (#0)
> GET / HTTP/1.1
> User-Agent: curl/7.29.0
> Host: localhost:8001
> Accept: */*
>
< HTTP/1.1 302 Found

< Location: initialize-admin.xqy
< Server: MarkLogic
< Content-Length: 0
< Connection: Keep-Alive
< Keep-Alive: timeout=5

Requests made to http://localhost:8002 and http://localhost:8000 give 403 errors. Is there some user/access control list to configure? I have tried the same with MarkLogic 9 as well, but I have the same problem. I have installed MarkLogic as the root user, and MARKLOGIC_USER in /etc/sysconfig/marklogic is set to root as well.

The server is sending a 302 response which is a redirect. The Location header there is giving the new location.

You’re using curl which by default doesn’t follow redirects. Try adding the -L flag. Or using a normal browser for this admin initialization step.
