New to elasticsearch, kibana and logstash

(Simon Mandy) #1


I am a new user to to elasticsearch, kibana and logstash.

I downloaded Elasticsearch 2.4.1 zip file to ubuntu 14.04 and extricated to /apps/elasticsearch-2.4.1/
Started it by /apps/elasticsearch-2.4.1/bin/elasticsearch -d

I downloaded Kibana 4.6.1 tar file to ubuntu 14.04 and extricated to /apps/kibana-4.6.1-linux-x86_64/
Edited /apps/kibana-4.6.1-linux-x86_64/config/kibana.yml and set below values
server.port: 5601 ""
elasticsearch.url: "http://localhost:9200"

Started it by /apps/kibana-4.6.1-linux-x86_64/bin/kibana
saw message [info][listening] Server running at http://:5601

But i dont get a page when i try http://:5601

Can any one help?

What do the elasticsearch logs say?

BTW, I'd not try to modify any setting at first. So keep the default Kibana settings values.

I think that "" should be something like ""

OK, I clean installed elasticsearch and kibana and started both back. (to get the confutation to default as you suggested)
Here is log from elasticsearch.log

It looks good.
