Anyone help me with this.?

Please format your code/logs/config using the </> button, or markdown style back ticks. It helps to make things easy to read which helps us help you :slight_smile:

Are you sure there isn't another Kibana process running?

thanks for your reply, yes i changed the format sorry.

ps aux | grep kibana
root 12378 0.0 0.0 4278540 736 s001 S+ 5:38PM 0:00.00 grep --color=auto --exclude-dir=.bzr --exclude-dir=CVS --exclude-dir=.git --exclude-dir=.hg --exclude-dir=.svn --exclude-dir=.idea --exclude-dir=.to

i tried installing kibana last week but not successful, if that could be a problem how can i remove old files?

What does sudo lsof -i:5601 show?
If that doesn't work, try one of the other options here.

bin sudo lsof -i:5601
Password:
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME node 8333 root 25u IPv4 0x4e19f76e1ab38273 0t0 TCP localhost:esmagent (LISTEN)

i should kill this process?

It's really hard to see what is happening here as your formatting is not the best.

But it looks like there's a process called esmagent that is running. I don't know what that is, so I wouldn't suggest arbitrarily killing it unless you know what it does.
