I’m trying to install grafana and graphite on raspberry pi so I can have a local server to collect and visualize data. Using the grafana cloud is nice but not my ultimate goal.
I found installing grafana easy but graphite not so much. I’m not a web server person or linux admin and the blogs I found seem to assume that I must be those people. I need some help here.
If I understand correctly, grafana is the software that can visualize data it pulls from data storages such as graphite. So it is useless without a data storage such as graphite.
I have an account with grafana cloud service and have written my script to log data to graphite and constructed some dashboards in grafana. So I understand the work flow on the cloud and I am a programmer. What I don’t understand is replicating this experience on a local install.
Here is a blog post I am following:
I didn’t follow the apache deployment. Instead I tried the nginx path here:
I was able to deploy but after saving a conf file and nginx failed to start.

Is it saying that some other processes is serving port 80 instead of nginx? It started fine right after install. Only got error after I saved config file per graphite doc.
Any help is appreciated!
