How to Install and Configure Elasticsearch

August 13, 2020 Liquid Web

Elasticsearch is a distributed, open-source, full-text search engine which provides multi-tenant capabilities for analyzing multiple data types. It stores and indexes data shipped from sources like Logstash or Kibana. Elasticsearch can then be queried for specific data to return useful information about a particular application, log analysis, application performance data, or other information. 

In this video, we describe how to install and configure Elasticsearch.

Commands used:
apt update -y
wget -qO - https://artifacts.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch | sudo apt-key add -
apt install apt-transport-https -y
echo "deb https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/7.x/apt stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elastic-7.x.list
apt update -y
apt install elasticsearch -y
systemctl enable --now elasticsearch
curl -X GET "localhost:9200"
