@syloee you could try setting splunk_home variable as advised here - https://community.splunk.com/t5/Deployment-Architecture/Where-is-splunk-installed-on-Linux/m-p/12313...

Did you re-install Splunk as the root user? If so, the directory permissions might be off.

Assuming you are running Splunk as the splunk user, try using chown -RP splunk:splunk /opt/splunk

You can additionally modify $SPLUNK_HOME in /opt/splunk/etc/splunk-launch.conf (assuming you installed on Linux to the default directory).
