Within the global section, locate the directive that binds the socket to an IP address and modify it to reflect your server’s specific IP address.
        run as user = netdata
        web files owner = root
        web files group = root
        # Netdata is not designed to be exposed to potentially hostile
        # networks. See
        bind socket to IP = server-IP
