InfluxDB OSS URLs

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.1 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.1 documentation.

InfluxDB OSS is accessed at localhost:8086 by default, but you can also customize your InfluxDB host and port.

Default host: localhost
Default port: 8086

http://localhost:8086/

Customize your InfluxDB OSS URL

To customize your InfluxDB host and port, use the http-bind-address configuration option when starting influxd.

# Syntax
influxd --http-bind-address <custom-domain>:<custom-port>

# Example - Run InfluxDB at http://example.com:8080
influxd --http-bind-address example.com:8080

# Example - Run InfluxDB at http://localhost:8080
influxd --http-bind-address :8080

Configure DNS routing

You must configure DNS routing to successfully route requests to your custom hostname. Methods for configuring DNS routing vary depending on your operating system and network architecture and are not covered in this documentation.
