I am trying to implement Elasticsearch to my Magento ver. 2.2.4 Open Source web store.
I followed this guide step by step until I hit a snag where "Elasticsearch" is not available in the admin configuration area.
From the Search Engine list, click Elasticsearch or Elasticsearch 5.0+ as the following figure shows. (The Elasticsearch 5.0+ option is not available for Magento 2.1.)
composer update thinking it might be the code base missing some files but after successfully accomplishing the composer update, the issue still persist.
Should the "Elasticsearch" Search Engine option be available in the configuration out of the box for this version of Magento? Is this option available for anyone?
