I installed GeoServer 2.13.4 with JRE 1.8.0_241 on Windows 10 64-bit system. The installation was fine however, when I goto http://localhost:8080/geoserver from the browser there is an error 404. I am not sure what the problem is followed the installation steps in documentation for the respective version. How can I resolve the issue?

    How did you install GeoServer and how do you know that the installation was fine?

  • Why not use a current version of GeoServer? what does the log file say when you start GeoServer up?

Assuming that the 8080 port is correct, this means that the page is not.

  1. I would suggest you restart your machine to make sure all the services have started
  2. Please try the following link: http://localhost:8080/Geoserver/Web/

I hope this helps.
