my java version is : 1.8.0_111

please help me on this.


Hi @jagan,

if you run sudo ./elasticsearch it runs effectively as root. Quoting man sudo:

sudo allows a permitted user to execute a command as the superuser

Hence, just run ./elasticsearch without sudo. Also, it is more common to start Elasticsearch from its root folder and run ./bin/elasticsearch.


Also please don't post pictures of text, they are difficult to read and some people may not be even able to see them :slight_smile:
