For reference, I have followed this guide to get me started:
Hello, I'm extremely new to ELK, as in I have just now installed everything, as I will be needing it for a research project.
My current goal is to be able to upload log files onto Elasticsearch and be able to query/organize the data, but I am having some issues.
First, I am not sure why but when I go to http://localhost:5601/ , Kibana doesn't show up but rather the Elastic dashboard comes up. Not sure if this is a problem but if it is, how may I be able to fix it?
Second, I tried to use the home page for ElasticStack anyways and went to 'Add Data' and chose Apache Logs with Filebeat. It produced a 'Getting Started' tutorial, where the second step, (after installing filebeat) is to 'Edit the Configuration', and I have to modify
/etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml and insert
output.elasticsearch: hosts: ["<es_url>"] username: "elastic" password: "<password>" setup.kibana: host: "<kibana_url>"
I'm lost on how to modify the above text, I don't think I have a kibana username/password, and what do I replace "<es_url>" and "<kibana_url>" with?
Any help/advice would be appreciated, thank you!
