EDIT: This problem is now resolved. It was because of my .bash_profile.
Hi, I made an SO post here on my problem here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/41149796/unable-to-install-elasticsearch-on-mac-sierra-10-12-2?noredirect=1#comment69515723_41149796
When attempting to start Elasticsearch 5.1.1 via
I get the output:
Error: Could not find or load main class -Xms2g
I've looked into:
I read it may be an error in how a class is called? But I'm not exposed to doing that. This thread doesn't help and isn't really my problem as I'm not installing a plugin.
I installed via Homebrew. Here is some output from that:
$ brew info elasticsearch elasticsearch: stable 5.1.1, HEAD Distributed search & analytics engine https://www.elastic.co/products/elasticsearch Conflicts with: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org /usr/local/Cellar/elasticsearch/5.1.1 (98 files, 35.2M) * Built from source on 2016-12-14 at 09:23:56 From: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/blob/master/Formula/elasticsearch.rb ==> Requirements Required: java >= 1.8 ✔ ==> Caveats Data: /usr/local/var/elasticsearch/elasticsearch_GabbAHH/ Logs: /usr/local/var/log/elasticsearch/elasticsearch_GabbAHH.log Plugins: /usr/local/Cellar/elasticsearch/5.1.1/libexec/plugins/ Config: /usr/local/etc/elasticsearch/ plugin script: /usr/local/Cellar/elasticsearch/5.1.1/libexec/bin/plugin To have launchd start elasticsearch now and restart at login: brew services start elasticsearch Or, if you don't want/need a background service you can just run: elasticsearch $ brew doctor Please note that these warnings are just used to help the Homebrew maintainers with debugging if you file an issue. If everything you use Homebrew for is working fine: please don't worry and just ignore them. Thanks! Warning: You have unlinked kegs in your Cellar Leaving kegs unlinked can lead to build-trouble and cause brews that depend on those kegs to fail to run properly once built. Run `brew link` on these: mongodb ruby
I also tried originally installing via manually extracting the .tar.gz package. I at first got some Java permission denied errors, but after running a
chownto admin for myself I also got this same
Error: Could not find or load main classtype error.
I just updated my Java JDK to the latest: 1.8.0_112 and set my JAVA_HOME variable to that directory accordingly.
The most recent version of Elasticsearch 2 (2.4.3) works. Meanwhile, Elasticsearch v5.0.2 fails.
What can I do to have Elasticsearch properly installed on my Mac?
