OH2 RPI3 Influxdb not working after install

I installed influxdb 1.2 according to this tutorial on a RPI3:

and went on with the first part of the tutorial:

I changed the /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf as decribed in thr tutorial and restarted influxdb.
I can then enter influx by CLI, but not via Browser neither http://localhost:8083 nor :8086.
On Port 8083 the Browser responds with a page load error (page is not there),
on Port 8086 it responds with:
404 page not found
I deinstalled, and reinstalled, googled but can’t get it run.
Grafana is running, but can’t acces the influxdb.
Any help apreaciated.

Port 8083 is the admin interface for InfluxDB. If you want to enable it, you should modify the /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf file. It is disabled by default. The tutorial does not cover this (if I am not wrong)

Port 8086 is the http endpoint (enabled by default). Accessing http://<host_IP>:8086 with a browser will give you a 404 (that’s good… it means that it’s working). (you could try: http://<host_IP>:8086/query?q=SHOW+DATABASES)
This http endpoint is used by openHAB2 persistence to store data into InfluxDB (with HTTP POST /write etc… it’s an API)

Conclusion: Your InfluxDB setup is working ok :slight_smile:
Double Check the Grafana setup steps… maybe something is wrong there

Well… don’t tell anybody about these posting:mask:
Think I have to go to sleep…

Thanks for your help.
