Elasticsearch install on linux?

Postby Adsy on Thu May 17, 2018 3:33 pm

Reading the instructions here (http://help.madcapsoftware.com/flare2018/Content/Flare/Search/Optimizing-Search/Elasticsearch/Installing-Elasticsearch-Remote-Server.htm), it only mentions if you are installing to a Windows server, but our site is hosted on Linux. I am way past the realm of understanding what I need to do at this point, and instructions from MadCap are only mentioning Windows.

Is there an easy step process for installing this on Linux?

You're right. There is absolutely nothing relating to Linux/UNIX installations for Elasticsearch, in either the help or the "Search" .PDF on the Madcap site - http://docs.madcapsoftware.com/flare201 ... hGuide.pdf
I would go straight to Madcap Support and ask for information, as this will be an issue for a lot of people. Non-Windows installations seem to be treated as an afterthought. :(

Got an email back from support, Elasticsearch is only supported on Windows at this time...

I suspected that would be the case. Thanks for confirming that on here.

Has anybody tried installing on a Windows VM on a Linux hypervisor?
