Help for Influx On Windows 7

Hi everyone, I must say that I’m a newbie of influx World, so I’m sorry if I’m going to pose you a silly question.

I’ve installed InfluxDB On a windows 7 Station by following the usual guidelines, by leaving as default all data folders (data,meta, wal). The main big problem is that if I reboot the station I’m not able to see all the data before the system reboot.
I use Node-red, InfluxDB and grafana to trend my variables.

I say that is possible to move the default folder from C:\Users\username.influxdb\data or wal or meta to another one, by using the conf file or an env variable.
I tried to edit the .conf file and restart influx with no success, I tried to understand how to set the environmental variable but all how tos did’t help such a noob people like me :slight_smile:

Could somebody help me with some suggestions?


Hello @ilmisu,
You should be able to change the config file and restart. What does the change look like? Silly question, but did you try writing any data to InfluxDB to see if write position successfully changed?

Thank you :slight_smile:
