# options. The filebeat.reference.yml file from the same directory contains all the
# supported options with more comments. You can use it as a reference.

filebeat.inputs:

# Each - is an input. Most options can be set at the input level, so
# you can use different inputs for various configurations.
# Below are the input specific configurations.

  # Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.

I just eliminated Filebeat from the server and downloaded it again. Worked smooth after that.
