I followed the instructions to set up and start kong on my macOS. It seems work fine. I got no error message. However I ‘got curl: (52) Empty reply from server’ with curl -i http://localhost:8001/ command.
Which installation method you used?
brew install kong (I use postgresSQL, not using Cassandra)
kong migrations bootstrap ran successfully?
This is related to a recent patch of PCRE in 8.4.3 on macos.
i had similar problems
brew uninstall luarocks
brew uninstall openresty
brew install kong
and rebooted mac a few times - eventually got it to work.
run with kong start -vv
Over the weekend, there was a fix to the way Openresty uses PCRE to workaround this problem. When you did the uninstall//reinstall cycle, you must have picked up the newer version of Openresty.
It doesn’t look like a bug. It’s the expected response message from a fresh install. Have you set up any route yet?
