[SOLVED] Is there an up-to-date guide for setting up ElasticSearch?

I’m looking to install ElasticSearch, but the instructions for Debian/Ubuntu appear to be pretty outdated. The link to the plugin docs are dead: https://pydio.com/en/docs/references/plugins/index/elasticsearch/

The instructions point to getting (via wget) an elasticsearch deb of version 0.90.2 from a URL that is no longer active; Currently the most up-to-date version is 7.4.2 from here: https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch

Is there a more recent guide for this?

Hello, @Joe_Gullo,

unfortunately, we do not have an updated version .

You can google it to find out an article for installation of elastic server (version 5, do not use 6)
Configuration elasticsearch in Pydio is simple and we don’t change the interface.
maybe this link is helpful: Enable ElasticSearch using Indexing plugin on Pydio 8.x

Ok. Here’s my process. Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 using Pydio Server 8.2.3:

apt-get install openjdk-8-jre-headless -y
wget https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-5.6.16.deb
dpkg -i elasticsearch-5.6.16.deb
systemctl start
rm elasticsearch-5.6.16.deb
systemctl start elasticsearch.service

I went to each repository, first removed Lucene, then added ElasticSearch. It appears to be working great. Remember, ElasticSearch won’t appear as a plugin to add until AFTER Lucene is removed.
