Hello @mukim, welcome!

It’s flagging the literal string “:” in your server configuration. Did you prefix a IPv4 listen IP with a colon? Looks like it can’t parse it.

Please also provide the info @tmacgbay requested.

Please post your server.conf. Make sure it is obfuscated and use the Forum tools </> not a screen shot. You can use the following command:

cat /etc/graylog/server/server.conf         | egrep -v "^\s*(#|$)"

You could also post details from the service with the following command.

sudo systemsctl status graylog-server

You could post any relevant information from the graylog logs you are watching during startup with:

tail -f /var/log/graylog-server/server.log

NOTE: These are all things that are in the tips that make your question easier to answer. It would really be helpful if you read through the tips and were more forthcoming with your issue/environment.
