Icinga DB is not running?

I’m new to icinga and followed manual installation on Debian 11.
Everything seems to be running ok, except that I get this warning on the GUI:

“It seems that Icinga DB is not running. Make sure Icinga DB is running and writing into the database.”

If I go to Settings → Application → Resources → IcingaDB I get confirmation that the connection is successfull:

Checking credentials on /etc/icingadb/config.yml and values are correct for authentication.

Restarting icingadb service shows no errors:
Nov 15 16:06:16 icinga icingadb[1269]: Starting Icinga DB
Nov 15 16:06:16 icinga icingadb[1269]: Connecting to database at ‘’
Nov 15 16:06:16 icinga icingadb[1269]: Connecting to Redis at ‘localhost:6380’

Please advise. Thanks!

the usual mistake here is that the icingadb feature of Icinga 2 is not enabled.

Thanks Johannes.

The feature was enabled as I posted before:
Enabled features: api checker icingadb mainlog notification

I repeated the same installation procedure, but this time I removed the , (comma) on the MySQL password defined on icingadb config file.
I guess that was the problem. I had tried using " " to enclose the password, but no positive results.
Thanks anyway :wink:
