Setting up SSL but Grafana thinks cert_file is empty?

I’m running Grafana 6.7.2 on Ubuntu 18.04. I’ve placed the Cert and Key files at /etc/grafana and I’ve specified these in the config file and made sure they’re not commented. However, when I try to start Grafana I get a error:

t=2020-06-06T03:09:30+0000 lvl=eror msg=“Server shutdown” logger=server reason=“cert_file cannot be empty when using HTTPS”

The config is entered as:

https certs & key file

cert_file = /etc/grafana/cert.cer
cert_key = /etc/grafana/keyfile.key

I’ve tried a few changes to give the files root:root owner and go+r permissions but it hasn’t changed the error. From trying to find solutions it seems that there is a specific error message if there’s a permission issue, which I haven’t seen yet so I’m assuming it’s not a permission issue.

Found the issue…I had to specify the cer and key in the defaults.ini not grafana.ini. Now it’s happy :slight_smile:
