Can you run this
cat /lib/systemd/system/influxdb.service

What’s the user thats running the service?

Thanks @FixTestRepeat, now I fixed it, I changed “binding-address: 5086” to complete “binding-address: 127.0.0.1:5086” and looks working, and change “http.enabled = true” from “http.enabled = false”. When I doing it cuz I am trying to use https connection, I coud not using https by following the guidline setting up the https.

gtest@guitestserver-trunk:/etc/ssl$ influx -ssl -host 127.0.0.1 -port 5086
Failed to connect to https://127.0.0.1:5086: Get https://127.0.0.1:5086/ping: dial tcp 127.0.0.1:5086: connect: connection refused
Please check your connection settings and ensure ‘influxd’ is running.

My config is as following:

[http]
enabled = false
bind-address = “127.0.0.1:5086”
auth-enabled = false
log-enabled = true
write-tracing = false
pprof-enabled = false
https-enabled = true
https-certificate = “/etc/ssl/influxdb_selfsigned.crt”
https-private-key = “/etc/ssl/influxdb-selfsigned.key”

Glad you got it sorted. Just noticed a typo though, was that related/causing it?

Hi @FixTestRepeat,

  1. I checked line 169 refer to [http.https-enabled].
  2. I do see it is set to ‘true’, but error keep reporting it as ‘ture’, see my attached pic following:
    image

And I retsart and retype ‘true’, i got following error

I finnally know that, since I didnt scroll to the bottom when checking logs of ‘journalctl -u influxdb’

:wink: live and learn. Glad to hear you figured it out
