I set up a new minimum spec Ubuntu 20.04 LTS server for the purpose of demonstrating install Grafana.
Once you have connected to your new server, make sure your package lists are updated.
sudo apt update
Then ensure that the dependencies for Grafana are installed.
sudo apt-get install -y adduser libfontconfig1
Now to download the binary, and run the debian package manager.
wget https://dl.grafana.com/oss/release/grafana_7.2.0_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i grafana_7.2.0_amd64.deb
Grafana is updated very regularly. To see the list of release version numbers available to download, visit https://github.com/grafana/grafana/tags
The install has now completed. You can now start the Grafana service
sudo service grafana-server start
Check the status
sudo service grafana-server status
If you reboot your server, the Grafana Service may not restart automatically.
You can set the Grafana service to auto restart after reboot by entering,
sudo systemctl enable grafana-server.service
Your Grafana server will be hosted at
http://[your Grafana server ip]:3000
The default Grafana login is
Username : admin Password : admin
You have the option to update your password upon first login and then be presented with the option to add a new data source and create dashboards and users.
