Unable to Login to Web Interface

I’m having issues getting into the scanner through (https://x.x.x.x:9392/login)

This was installed on Kali Linux.

At first I was getting an error saying that GSAD wasn’t installed, so I installed it. Now I’m getting the following results from gvm-check-setup. I run the command it tells me to run and it doesn’t provide an error, but it doesn’t help me progess with the gvm-check-setup command.

I recently changed the port number listed in
/etc/postgresql/13/main/postgresql.conf to 5434


/etc/postgresql/14/main/postgresql.conf to 5432

Please check the logs in /var/log/gvm/gvmd.log, so we get more information.

I don’t seem to have any logs.

i ended up nuking that installation and set it back up using the Docker instructions found here.
