Kibana fails to create in /var/run


I am a beginner with ELK and since I've updated my Ubuntu 20.04, I have the following problem:
When I want to start kibana it fails and when I check the logs it says "[Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/run/kibana/']". So I checked in /var/run if the file was there and it wasn't. I created a kibana directory and restarted kibana.service. Kibana was working but the problem is that I have to create that same directory every time I reboot.

I already tried to solve the problem according to that topic: When restarting my machine Kibana pid file is removed automatically, but removing 'pid.file' in kibana.yml didn't change anything.

Thank you.

@m-b79 what is the version of Kibana you are using? How have you installed it?


Hi tiago, thanks for answering, here is my current version of kibana :

"version" : {
"number" : "7.11.2",

I've installed it by following the steps at 'Install Kibana with Debian package | Kibana Guide [7.12] | Elastic'

For now I use a shell script to create the kibana directory in '/var/run' automatically at startup. It works with the following script :


cd /var/run
sudo mkdir kibana
sudo chmod 774 kibana

But without this script kibana is unable to create the file at startup.
