    Hi,

    While trying to connect to elastic search hosted on another server, I get this error message.

    “unknown key [number_of_shards] for create index”

    Can you please help in resolving the issue?

    What is your Elasticsearch version? We only support ES from version 5, and better 6.

    Hi,

    The Elasticsearch that I am using is version 7.2.0. Do you not support versions above 6?

    Thanks. We could replicate the same error on Elasticsearch 7.3.0

    Looking for a quick fix …

    WPSOLR is using the Elastica client library to manage calls to Elasticsearch. But the state about Elasticsearch 7.x support is not clear: https://github.com/ruflin/Elastica/issues/1649

    Per https://github.com/ruflin/Elastica/issues/1649#issuecomment-523792063 7.x is supported in the master branch. Is there any chance to get an updated version using the master branch? I’d be willing to test it.

    The master branch is compatible with 7.x only.

    It appears that WPSOLR cannot continue to use https://github.com/ruflin/Elastica/ as its Elasticsearch php client library. Elastisearch 7.x is only a few weeks old, but Elastica’s master branch is already not retro-compatible with Elasticsearch indexes created with version 5 and 6.

    An option would be to use several versions of Elastica in WPSOLR, but I suspect this would prove to be difficult. And what will happen with Elasticsearch 8.x, which is already announced as a breaking update (total removal of types)?

    I will therefore investigate the replacement of Elastica by the official low-level API https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch-php

    To be honest, this is uncharted territory.

    https://www.wpsolr.com/forums/topic/release-21-6/ now supports Elasticsearch 7. (tested with Elasticsearch 7.3.1)
