Running on Windows - Somewhat difficult

Hi Team,

Apologies if this has been answered, I’ve tried to do some basic searching but no avail.

Looking at your installation guidelines and support docs, Grafana make is pretty straight forward to run and install, advising to change the port from 3000 to 8080.

After installing and going through the config, I cannot get passed this page. FYI- This is a simple install, standard Win server 2016 in a dev environment.

"If you’re seeing this Grafana has failed to load its application files

  1. This could be caused by your reverse proxy settings.

  2. If you host grafana under subpath make sure your grafana.ini root_url setting includes subpath. If not using a reverse proxy make sure to set serve_from_sub_path to true.

  3. If you have a local dev build make sure you build frontend using: yarn start, yarn start:hot, or yarn build

  4. Sometimes restarting grafana-server can help

I recommend using the .msi file, and try not changing the port number. I have never had a problem by doing that.

If you are trying to get the dev environment started up, I recommend this article.
