Installing kibana on a windows server


#1

Attempting to install kibana on my elasticsearch node and get the following error:

PS C:\Users\user> C:\kibana-4.2.0-windows\bin\kibana.bat
module.js:338
throw err;
^
Error: Cannot find module 'C:\kibana-4.2.0-windows\src\cli'
at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:336:15)
at Function.Module._load (module.js:278:25)
at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:501:10)
at startup (node.js:129:16)
at node.js:814:3

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jason

I have exactly the same problem, did you find a solution yet?

Thanks!

What version of kibana are you trying to install?


(Wiebe Tijsma) #4

I'm trying to run the latest version, 4.3.1

What is the correct path for your kibana install, and does your error also say that it was looking directly inside C:\ ?

I've extracted kibana to C:\tools\kibana, and the output when I try to run is:
module.js:338
throw err;
^
Error: Cannot find module 'C:\tools\kibana\src\cli'
at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:336:15)

at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:501:10)
at startup (node.js:129:16)
at node.js:814:3

which is correct as the 'src' directory doesn't exist there:

I wonder if there was an error while extracting the archive. It seems to have missed both src and webpackShims after README.txt.

Can you try downloading and extracting again?

Oh wow I have no idea how that happened, the right folders are in the zip file. All works good now, thanks!
