Grafana Installation on Ubuntu

Download and install:

To install the latest release:

sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https
sudo apt-get install -y software-properties-common wget
sudo wget -q -O /usr/share/keyrings/grafana.key

Add this repository for stable releases:

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/grafana.key] beta main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list

After you add the repository:

sudo apt-get update

# Install the latest OSS release:
sudo apt-get install grafana

# Install the latest Enterprise release:
sudo apt-get install grafana-enterprise

Start the server

This starts the grafana-server process as the grafana user, which was created during the package installation.

If you installed with the APT repository or .deb package, then you can start the server using systemd or init.d. If you installed a binary .tar.gz file, then you need to execute the binary.

Start the server with systemd

To start the service and verify that the service has started:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl start grafana-server
sudo systemctl status grafana-server

Configure the Grafana server to start at boot:

sudo systemctl enable grafana-server.service
