InfluxDB OSS URLs
This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.6 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.6 documentation.
InfluxDB OSS is accessed at
localhost:8086 by default, but you can also
customize your InfluxDB host and port.
Customize your InfluxDB OSS URL
To customize your InfluxDB host and port, use the
http-bind-address configuration option
# 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.
