I had to setup Riak on my developer machine and needed to configure Riak Control it’s pretty easy but since the docs seem a bit outdated here’s how I got to run:

  • I’m running Ubuntu 14.04 so my config is located in /etc/riak/riak.conf
  • To turn Riak control on change riak_control = off to riak_control = on
  • And since you are on your own developer machine make sure you turn authentication off riak_control.auth.mode = off
  • The default ip/port listener for Riak 2.0.0rc1 is set to listener.http.internal = so in your browser navigate to
