Unable to start Kibana process


(Welborntellis) #1

I am trying to install kibana using rpm kibana-4.5.0-1.x86_64.rpm.
However when i try to start the Kibana process, i am getting below prompt
Starting kibana....... unable to start process kibana.

To check the reason i have enabled log file by setting the below parameter in kibana.yml :
logging.dest: /opt/kibana/kibana.log

However no log file is getting created and i am unable to identify why kibana process is not starting.

Redhat Linux 1.6

Can you try starting it by calling the binary directly?


(Welborntellis) #5

How can i call the binary and where will i find the binary?


(Mark Walkom) #6

For 4.X it's /opt/kibana/bin/kibana.

it is working now, there was a slight mistake in the kibana.yml.
