Did the inital install on Ubunto setting up mysql as backend.
I set the database name in garfana.ini to “architect”. there was no schema named architect in the database. Wasn’t sure i was supposed to create it before hand.
Everything came up and looked good. I added a couple of data sources, MySql Schema’s , one local one remote. Added some dashboards to each. Added some users.
Went to add carpet plot plugin and the service wouldn’t restart. I removed the carpet plot plugin same results. Failed with Exit-code.
Looked at var/log/grafana logs and saw it couldn’t find a schema named architect. Reviewed docs tried changing back to the default in the ini: grafana. No joy. Wouldn’t start,couldn’t find grafana.
Changed the ini back to architect and created an empty scema in my mysql server called architect.
Restarts fine, didn’t ask me to login or change password. I am in as admin. My dashboards and created users are all gone.
- Can I get any of my dashboards back?
- Did I miss a step in the install guides?
If yes, what was that step?
- Other I was supposed to do that wasn’t documented or readily findable?
