I use --geth to set Parity to geth mode. Because I want to use personal.unlockAccount and unlock an account permanently.(If don't set geth mode, it can't unlock permanently... which mentioned in this issue.)

But when I use --geth when I start my Parity. I can't visit my Parity UI... Before I set it, I can visit it with localhost:8180. But after I set it, I can't visit it with localhost:8180 or even How can I find back my webUI under geth mode? Thanks a lot.

This is my config:

chain = "HyperAlbum-chain.json"
base_path = "node0"
port = 30300
port = 8540
apis = ["web3", "eth", "net", "personal", "parity", "parity_set", "traces", "rpc", "parity_accounts"]
interface = ""
port = 8180
port = 8080
password = ["node.pwds"]
engine_signer = "0x00765Cc7584E3Ed11aE092b74d10AE2cE875aEAb"
reseal_on_txs = "none"
usd_per_tx = "0"

Thanks a lot. :)

parity --geth --force-ui

This should enable the user interface for you even when running in geth compatibility mode.
