AWS setup of Tyk Gateway and Dashboard done..but not working

I have installed Tyk Gateway and Dashboard latest community edition on AWS Red Hat Linux single node.
My dashboard URL is not working (404) although process is up. http://domain-name:3000/.
The process is starting, but i see following errors repeating every second in tyk-gateway.stderr.
I also went through other posts and entered the host name and binded to and ensured I did the using
sudo /opt/tyk-dashboard/install/ domainname. This was also successful…

Hi, can you share your tyk.conf?

Your connection string is just “1”, it should be the full path to your gateway hostname

My aws instance got terminated being a POC and I could not recover back. Apologies for not connecting back earlier.
I restarted my Tyk install using Docker, the install steps are completely done now. Please see

When I login now, it says credentials are invalid. Not sure how to trouble shoot this

I solved the issue it was a problem with /etc/hosts. I am able to login to dashboard
