Installing using Docker
2.0.2 -> 2.1.0 Upgrade NOTICE! The data and log paths were not correct in the previous image. The grafana database was placed by default in /usr/share/grafana/data instead of the correct path /var/lib/grafana. This means it was not in a dir that was marked as a volume. So if you remove the container it will remove the grafana database. So before updating make sure you copy the /usr/share/grafana/data path from inside the container to the host.
Install from official docker image
Grafana has an official Docker container.
$ docker run -i -p 3000:3000 grafana/grafana
All Grafana configuration settings can be defined using environment variables, this is especially useful when using the above container.
Docker volumes & ENV config
The Docker container exposes two volumes, the sqlite3 database in the
/var/lib/grafana and configuration files is in
folder. You can map these volumes to host folders when you start the
$ docker run -d -p 3000:3000 \ -v /var/lib/grafana:/var/lib/grafana \ -e "GF_SECURITY_ADMIN_PASSWORD=secret" \ grafana/grafana:develop
In the above example I map the data folder and sets a configuration option via
The back-end web server has a number of configuration options. Go the Configuration page for details on all those options.
