Grafana failed to start (10.0.1)

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    Grafana 10.0.1 Unbuntu 22.04.2

Installed with commands on grafana. com/docs/grafana/latest/setup-grafana/installation/debian/ (stable version)

  • Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.

grafana-server.service - Grafana instance

  • Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?

these two solutions included reinstalling grafana and rolling back to a previous version. Neither of these solutions worked

Hi @irischen999,

Thanks for opening this post.

Could you please provide us with the backend logs (the default location in Linux is /var/log/grafana/grafana.log) so that we can have more information about the error message?

I was actually able to fix the problem by deleting files and directories that had the word ‘grafana’ in them manually. sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove grafana and sudo apt-get purge grafana did not remove all of them. After doing that and following the installation as normal, it was working again.

however, I don’t know how to make this thread as resolved

Glad to hear that you found the solution.

That I just did now :smiley:
