Install netdata on Ubuntu 18.04

In a previous article I installed netdata on Ubuntu 16.04. This was a more manual process than required now. Here we just need to install the .deb file from the repository.

apike@ubuntu18:~$ sudo -i
root@ubuntu18:~# apt update
root@ubuntu18:~# apt install netdata

Edit the configuration file and change the IP from to your actual IP address, in this example:

root@ubuntu18:~# cp -v /etc/netdata/netdata.conf{,.bkp-00}
'/etc/netdata/netdata.conf' -> '/etc/netdata/netdata.conf.bkp-00'
root@ubuntu18:~# vim /etc/netdata/netdata.conf

Like so:

root@ubuntu18:~# diff /etc/netdata/netdata.conf{,.bkp-00}
< 	bind socket to IP =
> 	bind socket to IP =

Restart and enable the service:

root@ubuntu18:~# systemctl restart netdata.service
root@ubuntu18:~# systemctl enable netdata.service
Synchronizing state of netdata.service with SysV service script with /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install.
Executing: /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable netdata

You should now be able to access via the URL:
