Grafana installed inside of Gitlab/HedgeDocs?


Firstly - thank you for making such a wonderful suite of software. I’m really impressed how well Yunohost works from both a UX and functional perspective.

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online (Debian 10.10 / xen amd64, 4gb / 40gb)
YunoHost version: 4.2.8 (stable)
I have access to my server : Through SSH
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

Description of my issue

I installed Grafana a few weeks back and it did a strange thing:

  • it appears to have replaced HedgeDocs, which had been accesible at
  • when visiting that URL now it takes me to (gitlab is installed at
  • that path gives the grafana login page telling me, ironically ‘don’t get in the way of data’
  • I uninstalled Grafana via Yunohost Applications, but no change to these two behaviours
  • the rest of Gitlab works normally, but I cannot upgrade it from 14.0 without an error
  • I removed a Grafana related plugin that had installed itself within Gitlab but that hasn’t changed this.

NB - at no point did Grafana’s install process ask anything that could be interpretted as giving permission for it to overwrite an existing app or install inside another app or add a plugin to another app

I’m ok to lose Hedgedocs, but I don’t want to lose Gitlab… (and would like to upgrade it).


Hello, and welcome!

That is indeed very weird behavior. Couple of questions:

  • Can you share the contents of the NGINX configuration files of your apps? They should be in /etc/nginx/conf.d/ You can directly share them with cat /etc/nginx/conf.d/* | yunopaste

  • Have you made Grafana the default app? or any app?

Thanks Titus
I got permission denied when trying to cat those files. It’s a new vps and I couldn’t immediately sudo.
Grafana wasn’t made default - nor is anything (just dble checked). According to the Yunohost UI, Grafana isn’t installed any more.

OK, have them here: hastebin

An update on this:

  • I uninstalled Hedgedoc,
  • rebooted the server,
    Then I was able to update Gitlab.

But Grafana is still showing a login page at: (screengrabbed below) - the rest of gitlab loads fine at

Any idea how to fully uninstall Grafana given it’s not visible in the YunoHost admin UI? (or in the Gitlab Applications screen)
