how to create database?

thank you

Hi @Mark_influx,
Welcome to the community :slight_smile:. So there is a bit of a difference between 1.X and 2.X of InfluxDB. It appears you have the 2.X cli installed and are also most likely running InfluxDB 2.X. You have the following options available:

  1. Head to http://<ip-hosting-influx:8086 setup InfluxDB using the UI.
  2. Use the client which you discovered and run influx setup to begin the setup process.

The documentation you are referencing is for InfluxDB 1.X builds so you would need to install that version instead if you want the shell.

thank you for fast reply,i think i have already setup:


# influx setup
Error: instance has already been set up

i can login in the http://<ip-hosting-influx:8086 whit username and password.

how to show in interface graphic my database? or create and manage new?

becouse in the telegraf client i receive this error:

W! [outputs.influxdb] When writing to [http://x.x.x.x:8086]: database "database" creation failed: 401 Unauthorized

thank you

Hi @Mark_influx,
So it looks like you might be using the wrong InfluxDB telegraf plugin. I would check out this one for InfluxDB V2:

You can generate a token by following these instructions: https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v2.1/security/tokens/create-token/

yes i found, my mistake i use telegraf 1 plugin and not 2. resolve with the correct telegraf line
thank you
