GSA web GUI login fails

Hi everyone,
i finally got gvm20.8 running on ubuntu 20.04.
Unfortunately i cant login.
I created a user with “gvmd --create-user …”. If i try to login i get:
“Network error: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data”.

Hm i dont know how to interpret this message for solving this.
Has anyone an idea?

best regards

Hi,

how did you build your version of GSA?

Thanks for the quick reply,
cmake … -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/gvm

after of course “make” and make install

I mean which version/source/branch did you build?

Ah, i used
Greenbone Security Assistant 20.08+alpha~git-1fada1f63-master
okay, i guess i used the master branch, should i use another branch?

You must never ever use the master branches. The master branches may break every time. Please use the 20.08 release branches instead.

ok, i accidently installed an old one (as you probably saw in my previous comment.
gsad --version
Oops, secure memory pool already initialized
Greenbone Security Assistant 20.08.0~git-3b172285e-gsa-20.08

and it works just fine, thanks a lot!!

should i worry about this, or is it harmless?
“Oops, secure memory pool already initialized”

No. You can ignore that. It is just a warning. https://github.com/greenbone/gsa/issues/1374
