ELastic Stack Installation


(VINEETH KUMAR NARAYANAN) #1

I am not that much familiar to elastic stack and linux. My machine's os is CentOS release 6.8 .
Previously I installed elastic stack in lower machines using root user and started the service using the same.
The stack consists of elastic search, Logstash and Kibana. Now In higher environments we are not having root access. So is it possible to install the same as custom user and also have the privilege to start/stop the services

Elasticsearch doesn't support running as root and hasn't for some time. However, you can install when you're the root user. The way that's generally going to provide the best experience on CentOS is to install via an RPM. You can see instructions for that here. That will create the required (non-root) user for you.
