Elastic Search not getting installed in CentOS


(VINEETH KUMAR NARAYANAN) #1

While installing elastic search, we are facing issue related to the logging and following error message is getting displayed:

Please format your code using </> icon as explained in this guide. It will make your post more readable.

Or use markdown style like:

```

```

Probably a wrong installation here of elasticsearch. I'd recommend reading the installation guide.
