[Solved] Can't run ./elasticsearch


I run a Debian 7.11 virtual server (on a windows HyperV).
java -version return is : " java version "1.8.0_131" ".

I downloaded Elasticsearch 2.3.4 tar and unpacked it in /home/user/.

When I try to run ./elasticsearch (being in /home/user/elasticsearch-2.3.4/bin directory) I run into many java errors, the one that's probably at the source of the issue is "log4j:ERROR setFile(null,true) call failed." .

I'm lost here I just unpacked the source not sure what else I should do.


Did you download from https://www.elastic.co/downloads ?

Downloaded Elasticsearch from https://www.elastic.co/fr/downloads/past-releases/elasticsearch-2-3-4

My bad, it was a right problem.

Solved it running : chmod -R a+rwx /

I know it's probably not a safe way to solve the problem but it did the job.

Thanks again.

Is there a way to mark this as solved?
