Reproducing the steps you took. I downloaded, installed and ran elasticsearch as root and faced the same as yourself. To then attempt the same as a user and it worked a-okay. :slight_smile:

HI syswombat
Log in normal user don't log in with super user then try to run /.elasticsearch

hope you will get some permission issue ,if so then give 777 permission to whole unzipped elasticserach folder.you can also give only to log folder of ES also .
