Installation and first start

Hi all,
I try to install and configure ELK Stack for the first time. The installation was made with the official site instruction on OpenSuse OS, but probably somethig goes wrong.

When I try to start my Kibana istance I receive this error :slight_smile:

tibadm@dcppal00u:/usr/share/kibana/bin> ll

tibadm@dcppal00u:/usr/share/kibana/bin> ./kibana
throw err;

Could you help me understand what I wrong?
Tnks in advance
Best regards

Can you check to see if /usr/share/kibana/src/cli exists and is not empty? It's possible that your unzip didn't complete before further operations.

Hi Jen, tnks for you answer.

I chek and probably you right...because there are some folder inside but no file...
