Kibana.yml file



I've just installed Kibana and all the installation guides I've seen tell me I need to slightly amend this file. However they all give it's location as /opt/kibana/config/kibana.yml but mine is in /etc/kibana/kibana.yml

Is this an installation error and if not will it cause any problems?

Thanks for any help.

Hi John,

I'm afraid it depends on the version of Kibana. Older 4.x versions used the path /opt/kibana/config/kibana.yml but that has been changed in 5.x to /etc/kibana/kibana.yml (which is consistent with Elasticsearch also).

Also the Kibana installation used to be under /opt/kibana but is now under /usr/share/kibana (consistent with Elasticsearch again).

Which version of Kibana are you using and what is the link to the documentation you're using?



Thanks Lee,

I realised well into the process the installation instructions I had were out of date. I have found more recent instructions that I'm going to follow.

Thanks again for the response.
