Hello and welcome to the forum! There is a lot of information here on the forum and multiple places on the internet about installing and using the Greenbone Community Edition, and if you are having an issue the very first thing you’ll want to do is take a look at the official troubleshooting guide. You’ll need to pay special attention to the install method you used, as different issues may arise depending on how you installed it. This should help you get pointed in the right direction and special thanks to @bricks for creating it. If you have any questions about the guide itself (not your installation) please post them below in this thread, and thank you. :slight_smile:

When creating a new topic or message please always format your posts for better readability. See Supported formatting in posts (markdown, BBCode, and HTML) - users - Discourse Meta for all supported formatting options.

Especially log and shell output should be put into fenced code blocks by using three backticks ``` instead of posting it unformatted or as a screenshot.

For example

```text
ospd-openvas-1  | OSPD[8] 2024-01-25 12:01:53,274: INFO: (ospd.main) Starting OSPd OpenVAS version 22.6.2.
ospd-openvas-1  | OSPD[8] 2024-01-25 12:01:53,277: INFO: (ospd_openvas.messaging.mqtt) Successfully connected to MQTT broker
ospd-openvas-1  | OSPD[8] 2024-01-25 12:02:03,342: INFO: (ospd_openvas.daemon) Loading VTs. Scans will be [requested|queued] until VTs are loaded. This may take a few minutes, please wait...

```

will be rendered as
