I just installed Plone using the Unified Installer. I jumped onto my browser and entered :8080 and it says it can't connect. Did the same for :8080/manage and there is nothing there either. Last night it did this as well, which is what prompted the re-installation.

I'm not sure what's going on here I've seen the same problem posted elsewhere with no concrete solution. I opened the firewall up on port 8080, although on my first installation of Plone this wasn't necessary. Could anyone please help me out?

What is the output of netstat --inet --inet6 -ln | grep 8080? – Hauke Laging Feb 28 '13 at 20:26 response from netstat on that command. – Verber Feb 28 '13 at 20:35
Then your service is either not running at all or not listening on that port. – Hauke Laging Feb 28 '13 at 20:44

Make sure you actually start the Zope server.

Instructions on how to do that were given to you by the installer output at the end, or you can read the included README.txt for details.
