Missing /config file and yml files after new installation

(James) #1


I know very little about all this stuff. Im trying to learn form scratch and after a long drawn out day of installing the products logstash, elasticsearch and kibana. I am now stuck. Maybe this is not an issue but I have a missing folder /config. I am looking to configure the yml files to setup a sample.conf file to send windows events into logstash, then elasticsearch. I read in on of the many websites I have visited along the way, that there are some files in /config that need to be edited. But I cannot locate a config folder or any of the yml files that are supposed to be within this folder. Have I not installed something ? Do I need to run something to create these folders ?

What OS are you on and how did you install Logstash, if you can link us to the instructions you followed it would be awesome :slight_smile:

Hi Mark,

Not sure if you have received an earlier reply but I think I may not have sent it.

I have ubuntu 14.01 as the OS and I installed the products using a youtube video with is as follows, check out 10min 30 secs into the video. I followed those steps.
