Metricbeat modules don't exist

I installed metricbeat yesterday from the rpm.
I'm trying to use the http module but it says it doesn't exist. What went wrong with my install?

I installed with: sudo rpm -vi metricbeat-6.4.0-x86_64.rpm

I made a small edit to /usr/share/metricbeat/modules.d/http.yml.disabled and renamed it http.yml
I added /user/share/metricbeat/bin to the beginning of $PATH.

I tried the following (as root):
cd /etc/metricbeat
metricbeat modules enable http

It responded:
Module http doesn't exist!

I get a similar response trying to enable apache (I have not touched its apache.yml.disabled file).

Thanks for any help.

This might be related to a previous topic.

It sounds like I need to "sync" /etc/metricbeat/metricbeat.yml to a newly repositioned directory /usr/share/metricbeat/modules.d. So maybe I just need to figure out how to do that. (or wait for release 6.4.1)

Yes, syncing /etc/metricbeat to the new location of modules.d works. Change the line
path: ${path.config}/modules.d/.yml
path: /usr/share/metricbeat/modules.d/

in the metricbeat.config.modules section of the file.

Note that ${path.home} does not work as a substitute for ${path.config}, so I spelled out /usr/share/metricbeat.

Hi @rsnyde09,

I'm afraid you are running into this bug: We're working on fixing it and getting a release out soon. For now, you might want to try the workaround mentioned in the linked issue.
