Index a simple folder with simple text files - how hard can it be


(Arnold Villeneuve) #1

Hello Folks

I "finally" got ES 5.0 working on Windows Server 2012. What a bear! And I managed to get the Shakespeare data set loaded and searchable.

I have two things I would like to accomplish with ES 5.0.

  1. index and search a simple folder with simple text files within it ....

  2. index a small MySQL database with three tables in it .... thirty fields max

I have been cramming through the manuals and documentation and blogs and for the life of me I can't seem to find simple instructions on how to do these two seeming simple things I do with many other search engine tools.

Help assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Arnold

I suspect https://github.com/dadoonet/fscrawler can help you.

Have a look at Logstash and its jdbc input plugin.
