Cant get apache module working


I installed filebeat on client server. And used the following guide to start filebeat with apache2 module:
I used the default settings for .json files filebeat.template-es2x.json and filebeat.template.json.

I updated my filebeat.yml to the following:

#========================== Modules configuration ============================

#------------------------------- Apache2 Module ------------------------------

  • module: apache2

    Access logs

    enabled: true
    var.paths: ["/var/log/apache2/access.log"]
    enabled: true
    var.paths: ["/var/log/apache2/error.log"]

    Set custom paths for the log files. If left empty,

    Filebeat will choose the paths depending on your OS.

var.paths: ["/var/logs/httpd"]

I am using the following command to start my filebeat:
nohup /usr/share/filebeat/bin/filebeat -e -modules=apache2 -setup &

Filebeat starts fine but I cant see any apache information in my Kibana. The article suggests it would show up in Kibana. I am not seeing any errors in my logs. Can anyone please help? Thanks.

Filebeat modules use an ingest pipeline to parse the data, so Elasticsearch 5.x or higher will be required.

got it thank you.
