Latest response

Hello
I installed RHEL8 and I'm curious to know about Cockpit.
What is Cockpit? Where can I find it? How to use it? What are the use cases?
I'm a newbie and so curious to learn more.

Thank You.

Hi Venkat,

Cockpit is a web-based interface that can be used to manage systems. :)
Cockpit comes pre-installed with RHEL 8 ... https://cockpit-project.org

Activate Cockpit : sudo systemctl enable --now cockpit.socket
To access the interface - open a browser and enter : localhost:9090

Hi Venkat,

Here is the official Red Hat documentation for Cockpit on RHEL 8 : Managing systems using the web console ... :)
