Tyk Dashboard: Port 3000 not listening on Ubuntu Installation

Hi Everyone,

i’m trying to setup tyk gateway on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

I started with Tyk dashboard following this guide: https://tyk.io/docs/get-started/with-tyk-on-premise/installation/on-ubuntu/dashboard/

After the first step in “Configure Tyk Dashboard”, i am not able to access dashboard on port 3000 of my host.

Below you can find my history and the netstat output.

Any help is appreciated,

`… add of apt keys and update package list …

  1. sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org tyk-dashboard
  2. sudo /opt/tyk-dashboard/install/setup.sh --listenport=3000 --redishost=localhost --redisport=6379 --mongo=mongodb:// --tyk_api_hostname=XXXX --tyk_node_hostname=http://localhost --tyk_node_port=8080 --portal_root=/portal --domain=“XXXX”

I can’t see MongoDB in there?

Thanks Martin,
you are right, I didn’t thought at MongoDB at start, and I have no active processes of MongoDB.

Did I missed a point about it?


I actually missed the MongoDB startup step, after the service setup and start i only had to restart the tyk-dashboard service and all worked as expected.

Thanks for the support
