I'm trying to work through the book Seven Databases in Seven Weeks, and I'm in the process of setting up Riak. After installing Riak, starting a few servers, and putting them together in a cluster, the book says to verify the servers are healthy by checking their stats by going to the address
http://localhost:8091/stats in a web browser. However, when I go to this address in my web browser, I'm unable to connect.
The book is somewhat outdated so this could be something riak used to support but doesn't anymore -- but I don't know whether that's the case. It also may be relevant that I'm doing this within a, Oracle Virtualbox VM I've installed on my Windows 7 work laptop, running Ubuntu.
