Grafana service doesn't start. (HTTPServer run error: failed to open listener on address listen tcp socket: permission denied")

Hi, I’m trying to install a grafana server on an old android device.
I succeeded in installing pi-hole on the same setup (with Linux deploy) but I can’t even get Grafana to start. the issue seems to be that it’s failing to bind to a port

when I do

sudo service grafana-server start

(with the default 3000 port)

it says OK

but if i check after that with

sudo service grafana-server status

it says

[FAIL] grafana is not running ... failed!

cat of /var/log/grafana/grafana.log : here

if i try to change the port to something like 8080, it fails right form the start if i try to:

sudo service grafana-server start
[FAIL] grafana is not running ... failed!

cat of /var/log/grafana/grafana.log with the port change : here

Note : nothing is running on any of those ports

Hi @luser0 and welcome to the forum.

I don’t know much about that tool but this setup sounds interesting. What linux distro did you bootsrap? what is the output from hostnamectl if any?

And then how did you install Grafana? Looks like a package manager?
