Starting Influx As A service

I am trying to set up influx as a service so it runs on start up.

I have tried
sudo service influx status
sudo service influxd status
sudo service influxdb status

And they all come back with
Unit influx.service could not be found…

Any Ideas?

Hello @mdavies23,
influxdb should run as a service by default.

Maybe try

sudo systemctl status influxdb


journalctl -u influxdb -e

How did you install influxdb? What version?

If you didn’t use a package manager to install, then you’ll need to create the service file yourself.
