Trying to install Telegraf + Influxdb on rpi - Service failed to start

Hello everyone!

I’m having lots of difficulties to start both Telegraf and Influxdb services.

I’m using

sudo systemctl enable influxdb
sudo systemctl start influxdb

sudo systemctl enable telegraf
sudo systemctl start telegraf

and when i use

sudo systemctl status influxdb

i get

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# systemctl status influxdb

Can anyone help me? I’ve tried to start the services for 2 days now…

Hi @RubyRhod , welcome !

What are the steps you followed for the installation ?
Do you see the file : /etc/influxdb/influxdb.config ?
Can you start influxdb from the prompt without using systemctl ?

Best regards
