Having trouble setting up first application

This is a template you can use to report issues. You can also drag images, videos and include Preformatted text

Expected behavior

I have tried multiple times to install Forest Admin, with out success unfortunately. But havent given up yet!
I have a Plesk setup on AWS Lightsail server, I have managed to get the backend running with Mongodb Atlas as database, which all is all working like a charm based on commandline status.

Actual behavior

After setup is done, the app is just refreshing all the time in app.forestadmin.com without giving any real help from the dev tools in chrome.

Hello @Svenjoelsson and welcome to our community forum!

Thank you for sharing this video. From our side it seems that your project has been well created. Could you please show me the network tab of your chrome dev tool so we can see if there are some requests that fail?

Best regards,


Thanks for reply, here is the image of the Network tab.


I managed to solve this, but still cannot get why this is happening.
The solution was to open forestadmin in another browser, in safari it all works great.
But in Chrome the same project is reloading just like in the movie.

Please help me understand this.

It was some Chrome extension that did this…
After disabling all extensions it works.
