Http://localhost:8080 gives 404 error after initial installation of Virtual Device

I am trying to run the ERPNEXT virtual appliance. I followed the instructions completely. Once the VM boots up I log into the VM using the credentials provided.  I open my HOST system's browser (Google Chrome) and enter 'http://localhost:8080' it then gives me an 'http error 404' 'The requested resource (/) is not available' . I can't figure out why this is happening on a virtual appliance that was provided by you? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am somewhat of a NEWB when it comes to DEBIAN. Sorry.

Thank you in advance,

Ken S.

Hi Ken,

That should have worked. Logging in is not required. Once you get the
login screen, open the host’s browser and it should work.

Have you downloaded the vm from here, https://www.erpnext.com/download ?
Do you have any other virtual machines running?
Do you have any services running locally that may be listening on port
8080 (eg, Apache, IIS, etc)?

No Faisal, the VM is configured with NAT and forwards port 80 to 8080
on localhost (host machine).
