Setup WPSOLR and Qbox

From WPSOLR 21.4.

This video suppose you already have an account at Qbox.

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

 

What is Qbox?

Qbox is a service to host Elasticsearch indexes. 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 Qbox

 

2 – Navigate to your Qbox dashboard

 

3 – Create your first Qbox cluster

3.1 – Set a name for your cluster

3.2 Select a Cloud Provider (where your nodes/VMs will be deployed)

3.3 Select a Cloud Provider region (depends on the Cloud Provider)

3.4 Select the Elasticsearch version

3.5 Select RAM size (for each node/VM)

3.6 Select vCPU size (for each node/VM)

3.7 Activate the ingest-attachment plugin

You need to activate this Elasticsearch plugin. Else, your indexes could fail to be created.

 

3.8 Create the cluster

Wait a few moments, until your cluster is ready to accept your first index.
