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


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. Oops, secure memory pool already initialized · Issue #16 · greenbone/gsad · GitHub
