Why is installtion so difficult


I swear, there are 1 million ways to install and configure ELK.
So, I followed the elastic.co website documentation.

Why is it so difficult to install this thing?

My ES is working, I can CURL and see the it's healthy.
Kibana starts up from the command line, but I cannot access it from a browser.

All I get is 'Unable to connect'.

Kibana Config:
server.host: "localhost"
server.port: 5601
elasticsearch.url: "http://localhost:9200"

ElasticSearch Config:
network.host: "localhost"

Why is this so difficult and varied?
It's like a new adventure every time!

Sorry about the frustration. If I could get a couple more details I might be able to help:

  • What URL are you entering into the browser?
  • Are you trying to access it on the same machine it is installed on?
  • What browser are you using?
  • What OS?


Thanks, but I'm just gonna go with the service.
This is a full-time job.
