Kibana did not load properly. Check the server output for more information

After install on clean ES instance I got this error:
“type”: “response”,

Versions the same as on test instance:

Plugins directory: /usr/share/elasticsearch/plugins

  • Plugin information:
    Name: readonlyrest
    Description: Safely expose Elasticsearch REST API
    Version: 1.16.9-pre3

#kibana-plugin list

But on test instance this file is presented, on clean installation - not.
Permissions is correct - kibana:kibana on /usr/share/kibana/*
How can I fix this?

Hello @Adel-S!
Yes this is a tiny, but incredibly annoying known issue in the Kibana plugin. It’s tiny because it goes away just after installing the Kibana plugin like this:

touch optimize/bundles/

This procedure is described in the Kibana plugin docs page.

Thank you, Simone for quick reply. I missed this part, my bad. Everything is ok now.
