How To Install InfluxDB on Fedora 38

Install InfluxDB on Fedora 38

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install InfluxDB on Fedora 38. For those of you who didn’t know, InfluxDB an open-source time-series database, is a powerful solution for managing time-stamped data efficiently. Whether you’re involved in monitoring applications, analytics, or IoT projects, InfluxDB can be an invaluable tool.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the InfluxDB on a Fedora 38.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 38.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for InfluxDB.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install InfluxDB on Fedora 38

Step 1. Before we can install InfluxDB on Fedora 38, it’s important to ensure that our system is up-to-date with the latest packages. This will ensure that we have access to the latest features and bug fixes and that we can install InfluxDB without any issues:

sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing InfluxDB on Fedora 38.

InfluxDB is not included in the default Fedora repositories, so we need to add the InfluxDB repository. Here’s how:

  cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/influxdata.repo
  name = InfluxData Repository - Stable
  baseurl = https://repos.influxdata.com/stable/\$basearch/main
  enabled = 1
  gpgcheck = 1
  gpgkey = https://repos.influxdata.com/influxdata-archive_compat.key

Now, install the repository configuration with the following command:

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install influxdb

InfluxDB should now be installed. Enable and start the InfluxDB service using these commands:

sudo systemctl start influxdb
sudo systemctl enable influxdb

To make sure InfluxDB is running smoothly, check its status with:

sudo systemctl status influxdb

Step 3. Configure Firewall.

To configure the firewall for InfluxDB on Fedora 38, you need to allow incoming traffic on the InfluxDB port. By default, InfluxDB listens on port 8086 for HTTP traffic:

sudo firewall-cmd --add-port=8086/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --reload

Verify that the InfluxDB ports are open by running the following command:

sudo firewall-cmd --list-ports

Step 4. Accessing InfluxDB Web Interface.

Access the InfluxDB web interface by opening a web browser and navigating to http://your-IP-address:8086. You should see the InfluxDB web interface, which you can use to create databases, manage users, and perform other tasks.
