Cant login in grafana after changed permission on grafana folder

Hi guys,
I’m new user on grafana, I’m running v8.4.4

I made this changed (sudo chown -R administrator:grafana ) on grafana folder to deleted a plugin, but now I’m getting an error [Error while signing in user]

Any advice to solved this mistake?


That is a most unusual way of uninstalling a plugin. This might have messed up the backend data of grafana that expects the existence of that folder. Usually you uninstall a plugin via the UI or cli

Can you bring back the deleted folder or restore your whole grafana from backup? vm or otherwise?


Thanks! I restored a backup file and now is working as normal, thank you!
