Elasticsearch not installing

(Roberto Iglesias) #1

Im new here, first topic.
Now i'm trying to install ELK, starting from elasticsearch. I have followed the instructions in https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/_installation.html but the process frezzes in this line:
[2016-09-16 08:44:29,963][INFO ][gateway ] [Edward "Ned" Buckman] recovered [0] indices into cluster_state

Im working in a old notebook running Ubuntu 16.04.


open your web browser to: http://localhost:9200/
You should see: status 200. If you see this, then you succesfully installed elasticsearch

In fact it's normal that it freezes. You won't launch elasticsearch like that afterwards.

Primarily, sorry about my english.
Now, if i follow these instructions, the process get frezzed. So i tried to run dpkg -l | grep elasticsearch and see if the package was installed. And it wasn't.
By the way, i want to say that i tried installing elasticsearch in other way.
I followed the instructions in https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/setup-repositories.html but this way installs elasticsearch version 1.7.3.

#dpkg -l | grep elasticsearch
ii elasticsearch 1.7.3+dfsg-3
ii libelasticsearch1.7-java 1.7.3+dfsg-3

In this point, i tryed to acced to [SERVERIP]:9200 but the conection was refused.
If i run systemctl status elasticsearch.service, i get that is "active(exited)" and there is a warning:
No java runtime was found.

I hope this helps.

That is not frozen, that is Elasticsearch after it has started up and is waiting to do something.
