Does this website still work?

Does this website https://labs.play-with-k8s.com still work for any of you? When I click on ADD NEW INSTANCE, all it does is switch to CREATING… and then it resets to its initial state ADD NEW INSTANCE.


Nope doesn’t work for me. The ‘create’ requests get 500 response code.

Doesn’t work for me. I also have a 500 response when I try to create an instance

I can get instances up, but when I try the first step:

1. Initializes cluster master node:

kubeadm init –apiserver-advertise-address $(hostname -i)

It seems to start the initalisation process, but then I just get the error:


[control-plane] Creating static Pod manifest for "kube-scheduler"

[etcd] Creating static Pod manifest for local etcd in "/etc/kubernetes/manifests"

[wait-control-plane] Waiting for the kubelet to boot up the control plane as static Pods from directory "/etc/kubernetes/manifests". This can take up to 4m0s

[kubelet-check] Initial timeout of 40s passed.

[kubelet-check] It seems like the kubelet isn’t running or healthy.

[kubelet-check] The HTTP call equal to ‘curl -sSL http://localhost:10248/healthz‘ failed with error: Get http://localhost:10248/healthz: dial tcp connect: connection refused.


So I couldn’t get any further…

I tried the site but it seems that it is either under-provisioned or over-successful (too many requests for the allocated resources). Docker for desktop is the best choice for playing, I guess.

It created for me after waiting for couple of minutes. I didnt do anything. I just googled for solutions. Then went back to site and clicked on it to check my luck. It created new instances.


The first time I could not log in – 500 error code.

Now I can log in, but I cannot create instances, the browser console show me 500 error code response.
