X-Pack Installation with Elasticsearch and Graylog


I am trying to install x-pack in elasticsearch trough debian 9. But I am not using Kibana as web interface, I'm using Graylog. I found something like this:

But that didn't worked. There came an error when I tried to put:
bin/elasticsearch-plugin install x-pack
The error message was: X-Pack is not available with the oss distribution; to use X-Pack features Can someone help me with the step-by-step installation?

Best regards

Which version of Elasticsearch are you using?

Just use the standard distribution of elasticsearch. It contains all the x-pack modules you need.

7.7.2 does not currently exist. 7.7.0 was just recently released.

sorry, my fault. it's the 6.6.8

I tried to use this command: /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch-plugin install x-pack
but then came this:

If you are using the default distribution (not OSS) X-Pack is included. Security is however only included in the free basic license from version 6.8 onwards so you likely need to upgrade.

I am using the oss version.
Is it generally possible to install plugins in the oss version? It seems for me that its not possible.

X-Pack requires the default distribution and can not be installed as a plugin on the OSS version.
