Change Elasticsearch data store path

Hi All,

I am using Elasticsearch 2.4 and I wanted to store the elastic search index files in different location I specify.

I changed the /apps/opt/elasticsearch in elasticsearch.yml. But I am not seeing the elasticsearch data moving.

Please help.. Because I don't have storage space in default installation path..

I referred this link

I changed the permission from root user to my id. But till no positive result.

Found a solution. user should be elasticsearch. on executing the chown elasticsearch:elasticsearch folder as root user on the directory and restarting the elasticsearch and kibana resolved the issue. Thanks.
