Influx v 1.3.6
- Installed influxdb . Up and running all good. Then, was going to load some real data so wanted to change the data directory to a larger drive.
- First attempt, edited /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf and changed the data dir entry. Would not start.
- Second attempt, changed all three of the meta, data, and wall to where I wanted it. Still no dice.
- Went to the drive and location where I wanted the data to reside. I made the owner influxdb, so everything read
influxdb:influxdb and also made sure the permissions and owner exactly matched those in the default data directory.
Still no dice. Influx will not start after I change the directory. Here’s where it is right now - I have two config files, the original, which will allow influxdb to start no problem. Then I have my custom one, with the three changes to change location. Influxdb will not start with that one.
Triple, quadruple checked all paths, permissions, and owners. What could I be missing?
