My first attempt at Kibana 3.1.0 was a little bumpy due to browser issues.
After some reading, I performed the minimal "download, unpack, and point
the browser at index.html. If both Kibana and ES are on the same machine it
will just work."
Not quite! Contrary to all of the "don't set this to localhost", the
default setting in config.js resulted in a "can't find Elasticsearch"
error, while the second setting produced no errors:
Fails to find elasticsearch on the local host: elasticsearch:
No errors resolving Elasticsearch: elasticsearch: "http://localhost:9200",
However... Even the second setting produced a completely blank, utterly
useless, though error-free window inside Chrome Version 35.0.1916.114
("Chrome is up to date") on Mac OS X Mavericks.
For completeness, I tried Safari Version 7.0.3 (9537.75.14) (note: every
possible Mavericks update has been applied to this MacBook). Same blank and
useless window as with Chrome.
But the second configuration (using localhost) works fine under Firefox
Version 29.0.1 ("Firefox is up to date") on the same Mac OS X system,
exposing all of the cool Kibana features described elsewhere. So the
remainder of my initial exploration was, and will continue to be, in
However, the first configuration setting (the default found in the
config.js file) produces the same error on all browsers. And the second
setting is the only one that works, but only when using Firefox. Safari is
enabled on Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
