I get stuck on step 6 where it asks to open a web browser and enter http://localhost:10080. For some reason I do not get a login screen and I just get error "This site can’t be reached localhost refused to connect.".

Any ideas on how I can get Aggregate to run?

2. What app or server are you using and on what device and operating system? Include version numbers.
I am using VMware on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

I also tried securing the vm with my own password but I still can't get it to work..

I haven't yet.. I would like to get it to work on Vmware if possible.. I got it working in vmware in the past; but I can't remember how I did it.
If all else fails, I will try using virtualbox instead.
