New gray log install but won't start up


#1

Below is my server.conf log. I am not using https or mongodb authentication. I want to eventually once i get the base running but trying to get the basics running, and i’ll add security one layer at a time after. I’ve removed host names and passwords for obvious reasons. The error I’m getting now is:
org.graylog2.bootstrap.CmdLineTool - Invalid configuration
com.github.joschi.jadconfig.ValidationException: If REST and Web interface are served on the same host/port, the protocols must be identical!

Server.conf file:

############################
# GRAYLOG CONFIGURATION FILE
############################
#
# This is the Graylog configuration file. The file has to use ISO 8859-1/Latin-1 character encoding.
# Characters that cannot be directly represented in this encoding can be written using Unicode escapes
# as defined in https://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/jls/se8/html/jls-3.html#jls-3.3, using the \u prefix.
# For example, \u002c.
# 
# * Entries are generally expected to be a single line of the form, one of the following:
#
# propertyName=propertyValue
# propertyName:propertyValue
#
# * White space that appears between the property name and property value is ignored,
#   so the following are equivalent:
# 
# name=Stephen
# name = Stephen
#
# * White space at the beginning of the line is also ignored.
#
# * Lines that start with the comment characters ! or # are ignored. Blank lines are also ignored.
#
# * The property value is generally terminated by the end of the line. White space following the
#   property value is not ignored, and is treated as part of the property value.
#
# * A property value can span several lines if each line is terminated by a backslash (‘\’) character.
#   For example:
#
# targetCities=\
#         Detroit,\
#         Chicago,\
#         Los Angeles
#
#   This is equivalent to targetCities=Detroit,Chicago,Los Angeles (white space at the beginning of lines is ignored).
# 
# * The characters newline, carriage return, and tab can be inserted with characters \n, \r, and \t, respectively.
# 
# * The backslash character must be escaped as a double backslash. For example:
# 
# path=c:\\docs\\doc1
