There are numerous connections that you need to check in and around the heater, get flat and have a feel around for where it might be coming from. I have just had a similar leaking problem around the drain valve, sadly it looks as if it is the pressure container as the seal around that is damp - so the bladder inside may have failed.....
If you are not absolutely sure, put a couple of dry sheets of kitchen roll under the joints and check every few minutes to identify the location. Until that has been done, advice about sealing is very hard but most of the valves in the pipe are probably "John Guest speedfit" push together fittings and, as I was taught on here very recently, they are sealed by pulling to tube hard to try to remove it - that locks the fitting in and allows the O ring to seal. They are removable but let's tackle one thing at a time.
Is the leak a large one, or small, my reason for that is test could indicate the size of hole from a weeping joint (small) to a massive leak caused by a split heater due to freezing...... the latter us not a cheap repair....
Sadly, your picture will not open for me - probably due to the internet connection here in SW France right by the Bay of Biscay
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
