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
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
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)
3.10 Generate the cluster user/password (to paste in WPSOLR index admin)
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
- (1), (2), then (3) to edit a new index
- (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:
- (10) Let default “elastic” username
- (11) Past user “elastic”‘s password (regenerate it if forgotten)
- (12) Create the index. Done!
