help me please

First of all, you need to install the Cassandra database separately in your Ubuntu server. check this link (Installing Cassandra in Ubuntu)
You can create a specific user and password in the cassandra for your Kong gateway

Then, you need to locate /etc/kong/kong.conf.default then make a copy by running this command cp /etc/kong/kong.conf.default /etc/kong/kong.conf then open /etc/kong/kong.conf file to update update datastore/database configs like:

database = cassandra
pg_host = 127.0.0.1
pg_port = 5432
pg_user = yourCassandraUsername
pg_password = yourCassandraPassword
pg_database = kong

Finally run kong start
