Does the installation create the user elastic by default , or should i create the elastic user manually and then as user elastic execute the :
sudo yum install elasticsearch ?
When installed, the RPM creates a
elasticsearch group and a
elasticsearch user. You should execute the installation with root.
Thanks for your update.
So , if i need to install with root user , why the installation guide to use : SUDO ?
sudo is a command available of most *nix distribution that allows to execute a command using privileges from another user, by default the superuser (ie root).
