I know that Elasticsearch 6 is deprecated and we're supposed to use 7.6 or above, but I just went through the process of updating, only to find that my host (Cloudways) doesn't provide access to Elasticsearch 7 (yet), and don't provide root access, so I can't add it myself.

Is there a way to do some sort of workaround to make it work for a couple of weeks, or do I have to just stash my work on its current branch, and revisit this upgrade in a few weeks?


  • have you actually tried it? The wording from the docs says “you can use other versions at your discretion” ...

  • I have it running at 6.5, and while it works on categories, it doesn't work on products.
