Launchpad uses vhosts, so you need to visit (which routes through the container's Apache).

        Thanks for your help, and sorry for replying your answer util now.
        I did not quite understand your meaning, what the connection between vhosts and my "404" problem? Can you describe more specifically? and what can i do to visit http://launch:8085/ normally without any exception? can you show me some detailed steps?
         Looks forward to your message ~

Best Wishes

Why do you want to visit http://launch:8085/ directly? Visiting instead is what the Launchpad developers do when we're working on local Launchpad instances. Despite the fact that the startup process prints out some backend URLs, you shouldn't visit them directly.

(This matters because the site knows what name it's expected to be addressed by, and serves different content depending on the name you use: that's what vhosts, or virtual hosts, mean.)

Colin,Is that meaning that "make run " ok is equals to building launchpad ok?

 i wanna deploy my own launchpad environment , even change source code to match our own design goal maybe later. So i wanna access these urls directly or access some url which is my own environment not official link ? But i am totally a newbie to launchpad, i don't know is this thought possible?
