(AWS Linux) Failed to connect to localhost port 9200: Connection refused


#1

I am unable to start my elasticsearch service successfully despite a correctly configured elasticsearch.yml file. I have only uncommented one line and edited it.

network.host: "localhost"

I start my service with sudo service elasticsearch start and I attempt to curl to http://localhost:9200. I then received a message saying curl: (7) Failed to connect to localhost port 9200: Connection refused. This is what I see in systemctl status elasticsearch

Was your node every running successfully or was this a first attempt? Could you share your logs for Elasticsearch please? Should be located in /var/log/elasticsearch
