Setup WPSOLR and Elastic

From WPSOLR 21.3.

This video suppose you already have an account at Elastic.co.

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

 

What is Elastic?

Elastic Elasticsearch service is a service to host Elasticsearch indexes, from the company behind Elasticsearch. 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 Elastic

 

2 – Navigate to your Elastic dashboard

 

3 – Create your first Elastic cluster

Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster

Elastic Elasticsearch: new 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 a plan (the size of each node/VM)

The plan will determine the limits affected to your cluster (disk, shards, support, ….)

3.6 Configure advanced options

3.7 Create the cluster

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

3.8 Activate the ingest-attachment plugin

Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster ingest-attachment plugin

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

3.9 Copy the cluster endpoint URL (to paste in WPSOLR index admin)

Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster endpoint URL

Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster endpoint URL

3.10 Generate the cluster user/password (to paste in WPSOLR index admin)

Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster user/password

Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster user/password

The default cluster user is “elastic”. If you cannot remember his password, click on “Reset password”.

4 – Create the Elastic Elasticsearch index from WPSOLR admin

4.1 The WPSOLR new index form

  • (4) Select “Elasticsearch” among index types
  • (5) Select “Elastic” among Hosting Services
  • (6) Set a name for you index, visible in WPSOLR admin
  • (7) Set a name for your index, visible in Elastic Kibana admin (only letters and “_”, no whitespaces)
  • (8) Paste the Elastic cluster endpoint URL copied from the Elastic console:

    Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster endpoint URL

    Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster endpoint URL

  • (10) Let default “elastic” username
  • (11) Past user “elastic”‘s password (regenerate it if forgotten)

    Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster user/password

    Elastic Elasticsearch: new cluster user/password

  • (12) Create the index. Done!

    Elastic Elasticsearch: new index created

    Elastic Elasticsearch: new index created

4.2 Index your data
