I recently installed influxdb 0.8.9 on CentOS (I am using older version for making it compatible with grafana influx-08 datasource).
I was successfully able to start the service.-
sudo /etc/init.d/influxdb start
Setting ulimit -n 65536
Starting the process influxdb [ OK ]
influxdb process was started [ OK ]
But when I try to use it through shell, it says command not found -
-bash: influx: command not found
