RHEL 8, Kong Manager

Hello all,

Fairly new to Kong, even newer to Kong under RHEL 8.

I have followed these instructions to install Kong locally on my VM. I also have a separate VM hosting the DB.

The Kong Manager does not seem to be running after I set the

admin_gui_url = http://localhost:8002

The rest of the my kong.conf, is the kong.conf.default with the Postgres database settings for my setup.

I did a

netstat -ntlp | grep 800

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 20842/nginx: master
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 20842/nginx: master
to see if I can at least see whether the port is in use and I realize that the Kong Manager is not even running.

I have installed Kong in the past using Docker containers with no issues.

Any ideas?
