I install devstack on an laptop with ubuntu 18.04 with static local ip address this is the log after the devstack installation

This is your host IP address:
This is your host IPv6 address: ::1
Horizon is now available at
Keystone is serving at
The default users are: admin and demo
The password: openstack

Using lib/neutron-legacy is deprecated, and it will be removed in the future

Services are running under systemd unit files.
For more information see:

DevStack Version: ussuri
Change: be26306b23ab470e65cc93305453d2945aa33bf78 Support extras in Glance Store install 2020-03-30 19:53:32 +0200
OS Version: Ubuntu 18.04 bionic

and this is my local.conf:

disable_service etcd3

but on the dashboard address I get this error:


You don't have permission to access this resource. Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80

i also change the last row on the file on /opt/stack/horizon/openstack_dashboard/local

form ALLOWED_HOSTS=["*"] to ALLOWED_HOSTS=[""] and restart apache2 service, but the error is the same.

any ideas on how I can solve this problem and access on the dashboard I can't find anything on forum?

The first thing to do, always, is reading the logs. In this case, I would recommend to start with the Apache logs.

ok thanks... the problem is on permission: 2020-04-02 11:51:35.501051 AH00035: access to /dashboard/ denied (filesystem path '/opt/stack/horizon') because search permissions are missing on a component of the path

but... in which file i have to put the right permissions?

Are you sure the two errors are related? They don't seem to be.

By the way, the second error doesn't look like an error. Just a warning that TLS won't work. OpenStack works nicely without TLS.
