I see the server keep trying starting, it stopped at PID file…

Not sure what the reason why, i think it could be some permission issue so i login as grafana:

sudo su - grafana -s /bin/bash

Then i run this command:
/usr/sbin/grafana-server --config=/etc/grafana/grafana.ini --pidfile=/var/run/grafana/ --packaging=rpm cfg:default.paths.logs=/var/log/grafana cfg:default.paths.plugins=/var/lib/grafana/plugins cfg:default.paths.provisioning=/etc/grafana/provisioning

This is the error:

INFO [12-08|16:14:38] registering usage stat providers         logger=infra.usagestats.collector usageStatsProvidersLen=2
INFO [12-08|16:14:38] Writing PID file                         logger=server path=/var/run/grafana/ pid=2570381
Failed to start grafana. error: attempt to write a readonly database
attempt to write a readonly database

I checked the permission , everything looks good. After a while ,i decided to check the database.  i try to do this
sqlite3 /Data/grafana.db
(No tables showing up) , that means my db has been corrupted , i pulled my from the backed up and it's working fine.

It's frustrated since grafana didn't show the right message.
