ElasticSearch / ElasticPress support

Hey all

Anyone successfully get ES/EP up and running? I was able to install ES via apt-get but can’t figure out how to get it to start.

Any ideas?


+1 for this ^

Ack! I meant to come back here and reply.

SO I’ve been working around it:

The ES Side of things

  1. Install Java
  2. DL the latest ElasticSearch zip here: https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch
  3. Leave it in your Downloads folder or wherever it downloaded
  4. Start ES by double clicking on /bin/elasticsearch

The WP side of things

  1. Next, you need to tell WordPress where to find ES. To do this you need to find your local machine’s ip address. On a mac, type: ifconfig into the Terminal. Look for local address next to your en0 value https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/cppneac7vtxx474/2017-05-04%20at%2012.49%20PM.png
  2. Add this to your wp-config.php define( 'EP_HOST', '');, that ip address with the one in your ifconfig output.
  3. Search!
