chef-server-webui is now working for me.
There was some permission issue with
the private key which wasn’t readable by
default user. After I rebooted the server,
chef-server-webui service was seen under
Where can I find solo log ?
sudo find / -iname chef-solo
Another issue which am having is w.r.t
admin password. Every time I login it
asks me change the password, even
though I changed it during first login.
I had modified server.rb file by appending
a line web_ui_admin_default_password "xyz"
It doesn’t allow me to login.

if you don’t have the build-essentials pieces, try adding that.
Otherwise, can you paste here or in a gist/pastebin the chef-solo log?
This is how I deployed all three of our 10.16.2 chef servers on centos6.3
(centos loaded with the server/shell package group)

so you put this into a ~/chef.json file:
“server_url”: “http://localhost:4000” http://localhost:4000,
“run_list”: [ “recipe[chef-server::rubygems-install]” ]
and this in /etc/chef/solo.rb:
and then you ran:
sudo chef-solo -c /etc/chef/solo.rb -j ~/chef.json -r http://s3.
and it didn’t install chef-server-webui?

I am installing it on CentOS 6.3.
I am installing via bootstrap methodhttp://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Installing+Chef+Server+using+Chef+Solo
No, I am not installing the standalone installer.

What platform are you installing to, and what method did you use to
It sounds like you are not using the standalone installer (
http://www.opscode.com/chef/install/, click on Chef Server)

I was successfully able to install Chef-10.18.0 on a server.
My laptop is acting as client for that server.
I followed the instructions given on OpsCode wiki and
landed to a situation where command line communication
via knife is OK. When I click on link for WebUI, the page
redirects to < server_ip:4040 > which can’t be found.
Later, I found that the package itself is not installed, so I
installed it from here https://rubygems.org/gems/chef-server-webui with
the same version.
/etc/init.d/chef-server-webui service doesn’t seem to reflect
in /etc/init.d directory. It means that even after doing a
gem install on chef-server-webui package service is not up.
Please let me know where am I going wrong ?
