Unable to connect to elastic search server connection refused

(unnikrishnan) #1

I'm unable to connect to elasticsearch server form my browser. Connection get refusing.

There is no error in the log file

see the following elastic search config file:

`# ======================== Elasticsearch Configuration =========================

NOTE: Elasticsearch comes with reasonable defaults for most settings.

Before you set out to tweak and tune the configuration, make sure you

understand what are you trying to accomplish and the consequences.

The primary way of configuring a node is via this file. This template lists

the most important settings you may want to configure for a production cluster.

Please consult the documentation for further information on configuration options:


---------------------------------- Cluster -----------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for your cluster:

cluster.name: elasticsearch_loipl

------------------------------------ Node ------------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for the node:

#node.name: node-1

Add custom attributes to the node:

#node.attr.rack: r1

----------------------------------- Paths ------------------------------------

Path to directory where to store the data (separate multiple locations by comma):

path.data: /usr/local/var/lib/elasticsearch/

Path to log files:

path.logs: /usr/local/var/log/elasticsearch/

----------------------------------- Memory -----------------------------------

Lock the memory on startup:

#bootstrap.memory_lock: true

Make sure that the heap size is set to about half the memory available

on the system and that the owner of the process is allowed to use this


Elasticsearch performs poorly when the system is swapping the memory.

---------------------------------- Network -----------------------------------

Set the bind address to a specific IP (IPv4 or IPv6):


Set a custom port for HTTP:

http.port: 9200

For more information, consult the network module documentation.

--------------------------------- Discovery ----------------------------------

Pass an initial list of hosts to perform discovery when new node is started:

The default list of hosts is ["", "[::1]"]

#discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["host1", "host2"]

Prevent the "split brain" by configuring the majority of nodes (total number of master-eligible nodes / 2 + 1):


For more information, consult the zen discovery module documentation.

---------------------------------- Gateway -----------------------------------

Block initial recovery after a full cluster restart until N nodes are started:

#gateway.recover_after_nodes: 3

For more information, consult the gateway module documentation.

---------------------------------- Various -----------------------------------

Require explicit names when deleting indices:

#action.destructive_requires_name: true`

What is your browser calling?
Is there a server API that in turn goes to elasticsearch(ES)? Or is the browser calling out to ES directly?
Can you also share the exact error you are seeing on browser?

Please make the effort to format your post to be as readable as possible.

In particular, when posting configuration files, or code blocks, please use the </> button to pre-format the content. Without this, the forums will present your post as if it were in markdown format, which will obscure your content and make it harder to help you.
