Influxdb service not starting

I am a started with influxdb I am trying to make it work but the service is down it was working couple min and then I restarted it and it is not working anymore can you help me please

Hi welcome ,

it is on linux ?

what is the output of :

 systemctl status influxd 

do you  have errors in 

 journalctl -u influxdb

[root@ncias-d2060-v ~]# influx
Failed to connect to http://localhost:8086: Get http://localhost:8086/ping: dial tcp connect: connection refused
Please check your connection settings and ensure ‘influxd’ is running.

the output of vi /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf

auth-enabled = true

bind-address = “:8086”
log-enabled = true
write-tracing = false
pprof-enabled = false

Hi , can you show the first 10 lines of the systemctl status influxd command ?

and an ls -al /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf :slight_smile:

maybe someone has changed the permissions on the /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf file ?

Actually I just installed the influxdb 1.7.5 it was looking like working and then I restarted the service to see what will happen and then it seems like it is not able to restart it

Is there an influxd process running ?
Ps -ef | grep - i influxd

[root@ncias-d2060-v ~]# ps -ef | grep influxd
root 31724 31658 0 12:14 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto influxd

Can you try to start it without using the service like : influxd
This may give some more detailed errors

Can you please elaborate further on how to start it without using influxd?

I meant without using systemctl , can you try to start it using the command influxd ?

[aatchuiselg@ncias-d2060-v ~]$ influxd
run: Meta.Dir must be specified. To generate a valid configuration file run influxd config > influxdb.generated.conf

Your configfile seems to be the problem ,
Do you still have a previous valid version of it ?

I don’t think so because I just installed that version

What do you advise me to do in other to fix it? should I uninstall and reinstall it from scratch?

You can do the following :

 influxd config > influxdb.generated.conf

Modify that file if needed and copy it to /etc/influxd/influxdb.conf


 influxd config > /etc/influxd/influxdb.conf

no luck after issuing that command:

Sorry T ,
There was a typo in my command , it must

 influxd config > /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf

And then

 systemctl restart influxd
