Can't start webif

I've just installed the mod firmware and tried to install webif but it failed - this is the output from telnet:

Loading config file /mod/etc/mongoose.conf
Failed to start Mongoose. Maybe some options are assigned bad values?
Try to run with '-e error_log.txt' and check error_log.txt for more information.
Any ideas?

I'm not sure which command to use "-e error_log.txt" against.

You are probably still running the bootstrap daemon. Kill it and start mongoose by hand:

humax# pkill bootstrapd
humax# service start mongoose
Edit: or reboot : )
