In this guide, we will cover the installation of Elasticsearch 7.x/6.x on Fedora 32/31/30/29. Elasticsearch is a highly scalable open-source analytics engine and full-text search. With Elasticsearch, you can store, search, and analyze big volumes of data faster and in near real-time.

Follow the steps provided in this article to have a working installation of Elasticsearch 7/6 on Fedora 32/31/30/29.

For multi-node cluster, refer to Setup Elasticsearch Cluster on CentOS | Ubuntu With Ansible

Step 1: Install Java on Fedora.

Elasticsearch depends on Java, you need it installed on your machine prior to installing Elasticsearch on Fedora. Default upstream version of OpenJDK can be installed on Fedora by running the commands:

--- Fedora 32/31 ---
$ sudo dnf install java-latest-openjdk

-- Older Fedora ---
$ sudo dnf -y install java-openjdk-devel java-openjdk

After the installation of Java, you can quickly confirm the version using the following command:

$ java -version
openjdk version "14" 2020-03-17
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 19.9 (build 14+36)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 19.9 (build 14+36, mixed mode, sharing)

$ java -version
java version "11.0.1" 2018-10-16 LTS
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13-LTS)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13-LTS, mixed mode)

Step 2: Add Elasticsearch Repository to Fedora

After installing Java JDK, add Elasticsearch repository to your Fedora system.

1. Import GPG Key

sudo rpm --import https://artifacts.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch

2. Add Repository

For Elasticsearch 7.x

cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/elasticsearch.repo
[elasticsearch-7.x]
name=Elasticsearch repository for 7.x packages
baseurl=https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/oss-7.x/yum
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://artifacts.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch
enabled=1
autorefresh=1
type=rpm-md
EOF

For Elasticsearch 6.x.

cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/elasticsearch.repo
[elasticsearch-6.x]
name=Elasticsearch repository for 6.x packages
baseurl=https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/oss-6.x/yum
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://artifacts.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch
enabled=1
autorefresh=1
type=rpm-md
EOF

3.  Install Elasticsearch on Fedora 32/31/30/29/28

Elasticsearch repository is ready for use. You can install Elasticsearch using the command below:

sudo dnf install elasticsearch-oss

Hit the y key to start installation of Elasticsearch on Fedora 32/31/30/29:

JVM options like memory limits are set on /etc/elasticsearch/jvm.options

$ sudo vi /etc/elasticsearch/jvm.options

Start and enable elasticsearch service on boot:

sudo systemctl start elasticsearch
sudo systemctl enable elasticsearch

Check status:

$ systemctl status elasticsearch

Test to verify that it is working:

$ curl http://127.0.0.1:9200 
{
  "name" : "fed32.novalocal",
  "cluster_name" : "elasticsearch",
  "cluster_uuid" : "p44JohgqQcuwJj0iADuLiw",

    "minimum_index_compatibility_version" : "6.0.0-beta1"
  },
  "tagline" : "You Know, for Search"
}

Step 3: Install Kibana on Fedora 32/31/30/29/28.

Kibana lets you visualize your Elasticsearch data and navigate the Elastic Stack. Install it after adding the repository using the command:

sudo dnf install -y kibana-oss

After a successful installation, configure Kibana

$ sudo vi /etc/kibana/kibana.yml
server.host: "0.0.0.0"
server.name: "kibana.example.com"
elasticsearch.url: "http://localhost:9200"

Change other settings as desired then start Kibana service:

sudo systemctl enable --now kibana

Access http://ip-address:5601 to open Kibana Dashboard:

If you have an active firewall, you’ll need to allow access to Kibana port:

sudo firewall-cmd --add-port=5601/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --reload
