Hi All, i read documentation from devdocs that how to install elastic search. For this i have install java jdk package in my localhost and now i am trying to install elastic search latest version using cmd but it's taking too much time(it's around 6 hours now).

I wanted to know that is elastic search will work on localhost or not. because i tried port localhost:9200 in my local machine it's running please check in below screenshot and even configured it in Magento 2.3.4 p2 version in backend and it's showing Successful! Test again? with same host localhost:9200 without completion of elastic search setup.

I have installed Elasticsearch in my Linux Mint & It's working fine. Here is the steps.

Run the below command to Install Elasticsearch In locally.

Download and install the public signing key :

wget -qO - https://artifacts.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch | sudo apt-key add -

Installing from the APT repositoryedit

You may need to install the apt-transport-https package on Debian before proceeding :

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https

Save the repository definition to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elastic-7.x.list :

echo "deb https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/7.x/apt stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elastic-7.x.list

You can install the Elasticsearch Debian package with :

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is not started automatically after installation. How to start and stop Elasticsearch depends on whether your system uses SysV init or systemd (used by newer distributions).

ps -p 1

Running Elasticsearch with SysV init : Use the update-rc.d command to configure Elasticsearch to start automatically when the system boots up :

sudo update-rc.d elasticsearch defaults 95 10

Elasticsearch can be started and stopped using the service command :

sudo -i service elasticsearch start

sudo -i service elasticsearch stop

Configure Apache and Elasticsearch : Set up a proxy (Set up a proxy for Apache 2.4)

Enable mod_proxy as follows :

a2enmod proxy_http or sudo a2enmod proxy_http

Use a text editor to open /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

Add the following directive at the top of the file :

Listen 8080

Add the following at the bottom of the file :

<VirtualHost *:8080>
    ProxyPass "/" "http://localhost:9200/"
    ProxyPassReverse "/" "http://localhost:9200/"

Restart Apache :

service apache2 restart or sudo service apache2 restart

Verify the proxy works by entering the following command :

For example, if your proxy uses port 8080:

curl -i http://localhost:8080/_cluster/health

If curl request success then messages display like below :

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Sun, 23 Aug 2020 06:05:56 GMT Server: Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) content-type: application/json; charset=UTF-8 content-length: 389


Go to Admin Panel -> Stores -> Settings -> Configuration -> Catalog -> Catalog Search. Change the settings like below.

Search Engine : Search Engine7

Elasticsearch Server Hostname : localhost

Elasticsearch Server Port : 8080

Elasticsearch Index Prefix : magento2

Enable Elasticsearch HTTP Auth : No

Elasticsearch Server Timeout : 15

Now save the configuration & run below cache clean command.

php bin/magento cache:clean

Now click on Test Connection button.

After successful you will receive Successful! Test again? in Test Connection button.

Yes you can install it on localhost. rl localhost:9200 If not installed then: sudo apt update

Then run the installation: sudo apt install elasticsearch

First, reload the systemd configuration: sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Then, enable the Elasticsearch service with: sudo systemctl enable elasticsearch.service

And finally, after the service is enabled, start Elasticsearch: sudo systemctl start elasticsearch.service
