Rasa bot is not working in localhost url


I created a rasa chatbot in latest version and it is working fine in commandline and chat.html but while opening localhost url like http://localhost:5006 in chat.html it is showing “this site can’t be reached” How can I make this localhost url work??

thanks in advance!

hi @Mounika1 the issue due too CORS request, you need to enable cors while you run your rasa server, you can use the below command:

rasa run -m models --enable-api --cors “*” --debug


while running above command it is showing “hello from rasa” in localhost url and chat.html is empty. where our bot is running??

hey @Mounika1 can you tell me which UI you are using to connect your Rasa, I mean that chat.html? Can you please tell what’s in that chat.html? If you want you can try out this too it may help you: https://github.com/JiteshGaikwad/Rasa_CustomUI-v_2.0

hey @Mounika1 sorry but I haven’t used the rasa-webchat yet :sweat_smile:

it’s ok

Run rasa run -m models --enable-api --cors “*” --debug

Before opening the html file.

I’m running this command on my AWS EC2 instance:

docker run --user 1000 -v $(pwd)/models:/app/models rasa/rasa:latest-full run -m models --enable-api --cors “*” --debug

and still localhost:5005 is not displaying hello message from rasa.

I’ve followed this for initial setup: Deploying your Rasa Assistant

I’ve tried with docker-compose too but still nothing loads in my localhost:5005 (ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED)

version: '3.0'
    image: rasa/rasa:latest-full
      - 5005:5005
      - ./:/app
      - run
      - -m
      - models
      - --enable-api
      - --cors
      - "*"
      - --endpoints
      - endpoints.yml

Also my container is allowing traffic on that port:


There are my aws ec2 inbound rules:

I’ve also checked VPC Network ACL which looks OK:

I’ve also tried disabling my firewall and it still doesn’t work, here is my console after docker-compose up:

Can you help @JiteshGaikwad?

EDIT: I’ve tried this from aws console and it works:

but this same command doesn’t work from my local console, why is that?

EDIT2: Solved by accesing through my instance public IP and port 5005

Replace the url http://localhost:5005 with <Ec2 -publicIP>:5005
