I am trying to start my webhttrack on ubuntu 12.04 precise pangolin but all i get is the opening screen. When i press any button on the page it gives me the following errors:

Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to barney:8081
Suggestions:
Try reloading: barney:­8081/­server/­step2.­html

i tried to run from a terminal window and get the output here:

webhttrack
/usr/bin/webhttrack(4405:( launching /usr/bin/x-www-browser
/usr/bin/webhttrack(4405:( spawning regular browser..
Created new window in existing browser session.
/usr/bin/webhttrack(4405:( browser exited
/usr/bin/webhttrack: line 167:  4422 Killed                 
${BINPATH}/htsserver "${DISTPATH}/" path "${HOME}/websites" lang "${LANGN}"
$@

If anyone can help me i appreciate it.

Try running http://yourHostname:8080/server/index.html in your browser. –  tijybba Jun 29 '12 at 15:20
    
Your hostname means run hostname in terminal , copy that name and replace that in yourhostname in above address. –  tijybba Jun 30 '12 at 2:31

I had the same bug.

It seems that after editing

/etc/apache2/ports.conf

and commenting all the lines like :

#Listen 8080
#NameVirtualHost *:8080

and :

sudo service apache2 restart

it works.

I don't have the time to play around and investigate the bug more than that

PS: Before that I also installed the last quantal version but it didn't change a thing

For me the problem was using chrome/chromium.

As described here, i hardcoded firefox in the webhttrack script:

sudo vim /usr/bin/webhttrack

and modified the first line into:

BROWSEREXE="firefox"

works like a charm after!

You can use firefox instead of chrome. Interestingly, you don't even need to use firefox as long as you open it. (Would be interested to know why this could be.) My default browser is chrome and webhtttrack won't open there unless firefox is open as well.
