Installation Docs not working as recorded for CentOS

I have completed all steps in this recording - How to Install Graylog on CentOS 7 | Graylog

But it fails here:

[root@graylog ~]# yum install elasticsearch-oss
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Repository rsyslog_v8_daily is listed more than once in the configuration
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

Is there a better Doc or Vid?



If you are doing a new install of OpenSource Graylog you should be installing OpenSearch Graylog is moving away from Elasticsearch (support stops at 7.10.x) The docs for it aren’t great… yet… but CentOS is slightly easier than Debian.

Hello Again @jerryroy1 :slight_smile:

Perhaps try this…

root #  yum clean all
root #  rpm --import
root #  vi /etc/yum.repos.d/elasticsearch.repo

root #  yum update
root #  yum install elasticsearch-oss
root #  systemctl daemon-reload
root #  systemctl enable elasticsearch.service
root #  systemctl start elasticsearch.service
root #  systemctl status elasticsearch.service
root # curl -XGET

Here is a pic from my cURL and elasticsearch yaml file. Notice I didn’t configure anything for Elasticsearch, Default

Again, same message as before. No package elasticsearch-oss available.

See steps in attached text message.

(Attachment elastic-install-v7.x.txt is missing)


You must be doing something wrong, This is the second time I install elasticsearch-0ss
EDIT: I seen this

elasticsearch-6.x | 1.3 kB 00:00:00
Not using downloaded elasticsearch-6.x/repomd.xml because it is older than what we have:

Make sure you do not have any other package that’s for Elasticsearch on the node. Clean everything up and try again.

EDIT: Better explanation about this here…

Not sure what that is?

We’re sorry, but your email message to [“”] (titled RE: [Graylog Community] Email issue – Posting error) didn’t work.

Here are some things to check:

· Do you use more than one email address? Did you reply from a different email address than the one you originally used? Email replies require that you use the same email address when replying.

· Did your email software properly use the Reply-To: email address when replying? Unfortunately, some email software incorrectly sends replies to the From: address, which won’t work.

· Was the Message-ID header in the email modified? The Message-ID must be consistent and unchanged.

I don’t think that has anything to do with this post , perhaps create another post about you email address not working for the forum.
As for getting help on you issue, maybe use the web browser for now.
