[BEGINNER] just started. E&K installed and running but cannot work out what to do next

Running Windows 10 with 72Gb RAM and software located as follows.
C:\Program Files\Elastic\Elasticsearch\6.2.4
C:\enwiki\enwiki-20180423-cirrussearch-general.json (from https://dumps.wikimedia.org/other/cirrussearch/20180423/ 1/26)
I found and have tried to follow https://www.elastic.co/blog/loading-wikipedia
But still no go.
Is there a commercial (or even free) one-to-one service that can guide me over my mountain of ignorance, or even better, remotely access my machine?
All the videos make it appear so easy but I haven't found one that does exactly what I want.
This has been giving me a headache for months.
I apologise if I've posted this in the wrong place.



What is the problem you'r facing? What does "still no go" mean?
If there are errors while loading the data could copy & paste here (using the </> tag)?


Thankyou for responding

No data loaded.

I have (I think) follow steps 1 & 2 from https://www.elastic.co/blog/loading-wikipedia 1

though with the 'bin/plugin install analysis-icu' instruction I simply extracted the six files contained in the zip file into C:\Program Files\Elastic\Elasticsearch\6.2.4\plugins\analysis-icu-6.2.4

I have attached a screenshot of the amended bash shell commands:

hope this helps

Just spotted omissions in my copy and pasted bash shell commands.
I'll try to reproduce the bash shell commands manually and see what happens.
Obviously I've little idea of what I'm doing but hope that it will eventually make sense.

Ok, you have downloaded the wiki file. You dont need to extract that into the plugin dir :slight_smile: any temp dir will do. The scripting above is to prepare your index to receive data, it does not load it yet. For that you need to move to step 3 & 4...

before I move onto step 3, I still have 3 errors on the console. Any ideas?

Please don't post images of text as they are hardly readable and not searchable.

Instead paste the text and format it with </> icon. Check the preview window.

Kibana does not run code like this.

the errors offer suggestions for what is expected, but I've copied the lines from the instruction page ??????

sorry about the images. will post text in future.
