    Hi,

    This is a Solr test index, which is deprecated. Please delete it, and create an Elasticsearch test index instead.

    Can i ask you for installation tutorial for dummies. I want to try your plugin in my test environment. WordPress is updated to latest version, WooCommerce to latest version, all plugin updated, Xstore theme. If we are satisfied with speed and look and feeling we will purchase licence and install on live server. Could you point me to right direction?

    Create your test Elasticsearch index. Follow the tutorial mentioned above, and you’ll get your test index up and running in 30 seconds.

    I’m stuck on Create free test index. Nothing is happening like in video.

    You seem to have problems contacting our Elasticsearch servers. You’ll need to install a local Elasticsearch or Solr.

    Right on. Is it “burden” like you said or i could digg into it? 🙂

    You could try to check your WP logs for errors.

    Do you have php curl extension activated on your server ? (WPSOLR uses this extension to communicate with ES/SOlr ). You should see php or WP error if not.

    But sometimes, the hosting provider is blocking all outbound ports. You can ask them.

    I checked, and curl is not installed on my server.

    Here is the php cURL manual: https://php.net/manual/en/book.curl.php

    Is it easier to install local Elasticsearch or Solr server? How can i do this. Our site is on dedicated server, i have root privileges on server.

    https://www.wpsolr.com/wpsolr/search/install+apache+solr. But you’ll need curl and php-curl too.

    I got that. But what is bugging me is what is better solution. Local server or your server? I guess local server is better.

    Local server is faster, and free.
