Info: This post is one of the article in context of this post: Huawei Cloud ECS server notes
I have installed ES on our Huawei CLoud server using docker just now. It's simple, but there is still something important to be aware of.
Create firstly my launch file:
touch ~/launchers/docker_es_8881.sh vi ~/launchers/docker_es_8881.sh
Fill the following code into this file:
docker rm -f es_docker_8881 docker run -it -d --privileged=true --net bridge-network \ --name es_docker_8881 \ -p 8881:9200 \ -e ES_JAVA_OPTS="-Xms256m -Xmx256m" \ -e "discovery.type=single-node" \ -v /home/jemaloQ/docker/es_8881/elasticsearch:/usr/share/elasticsearch \ elasticsearch:7.5.2
Then I tried to launch the docker container using this launch file (
sh ~/launchers/docker_es_8881.sh), however, the launched container is always in exited status (check it by executing
docker ps -a | grep es_8881).
Thus I tried firstly changing the access permission of the mapping directory:
sudo chmod -R 777 /home/jemaloQ/docker/es_8881/elasticsearch/
However, I still had the same issue.
Then I tried to launch it without folder mapping using the following cmd line:
docker rm -f es_docker_8881 docker run -it -d --privileged=true --net bridge-network --name es_docker_8881 -p 8881:9200 -e ES_JAVA_OPTS="-Xms256m -Xmx256m" -e "discovery.type=single-node" -v elasticsearch:7.5.2
Now the container started to work. So I then copied its content to the mapping folder in host machine:
docker cp es_docker_8881:/usr/share/elasticsearch/ /home/jemaloQ/docker/es_8881/elasticsearch
Then I tried again launching the docker container using our launch file (
sh ~/launchers/docker_es_8881.sh), it works this time.
By default, the ES database is not secured by a password. One needs to firstly enable the xpack feature.
sudo vi /home/jemaloQ/docker/es_8881/elasticsearch/config/elasticsearch.yml
Add the following lines into this config file and save
http.cors.enabled: true http.cors.allow-origin: "*" http.cors.allow-headers: Authorization xpack.security.enabled: true xpack.security.transport.ssl.enabled: true
Now relaunch our container. Then enter the inside bash of the container and setup the password
sudo docker exec -it es_docker_8881 /bin/bash cd bin/ ./elasticsearch-setup-passwords interactive
Then setup a series of passwords in interactive mode:
Now test our ElasticSearch database in Python:
from elasticsearch import Elasticsearch #es = Elasticsearch('IP:9200') #es = Elasticsearch('http://host:9200') es = Elasticsearch('http://188.8.131.52:8881',http_auth=("elastic", "123456")) es.indices.get_alias()
