Setup WPSOLR and Compose

From WPSOLR 21.3.

This video suppose you are hosting your WordPress site at Compose.

You will see how to create a Compose Elasticsearch index with a few clicks.

 

What is Compose?

Compose is a managed cloud hosting platform. It can host your Elasticsearch servers. Rather than installing Elasticsearch on your own servers, you get a subscription and let the service manage your indexes on your behalf. No need of manpower, or servers, anymore.

Here is the video tutorial:

1 – Signup for a free trial at Compose

 

2 – Navigate to your Compose dashboard

 

3 – Create your first Compose Elasticsearch deployment

(3) Select the Elasticsearch version (always choose the latest version)

(4) Select VMs initial size

(5) Start the application creation

Wait a few minutes until your Elasticsearch deployment is ready:
