I am a new user of elk whoa! So my knowledge is limited. But is there a difference running
service elasticsearch start
The reason being, I am following the installation guide for elasticsearch 2.X and when I come to the step of issuing the start up script I get errors such as the following:
asticsearchException[Failed to load logging configuration]; nested: NoSuchFileException[/usr/share/elasticsearch/config];
Caused by: java.nio.file.NoSuchFileException: /usr/share/elasticsearch/config
Well I can tell you there is no config file in /usr/share/elasticsearch. I have installed java 8. Maybe I am reading the output wrong.
So the issue seems to disappear when I run:
sudo service elasticsearch start
But elasticsearch is up and running successfully when tested with the curl command. Not sure what is going on. Any suggestions?
