Repository Configurationedit

Add the following in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory in a file with a .repo suffix, for example curator.repo


The repositories are different for CentOS/RHEL 6 and 7 due to library and path differences. Be sure to use the correct version for your system!

RHEL/CentOS 6:

name=CentOS/RHEL 6 repository for Elasticsearch Curator 5.x packages

RHEL/CentOS 7:

name=CentOS/RHEL 7 repository for Elasticsearch Curator 5.x packages

Binary Package Installationedit

The RPM version of Curator is a binary version. What this really means is that the source is frozen, and all required libraries are bundled with the curator binary, so there are no conflicts.

There are separate binary packages for RedHat variants. The binary packages resulting from the creation process have been tested on CentOS 6 & 7, with a different binary for each. They may work on similar variants and/or derivatives, but they have not been tested.

yum install elasticsearch-curator

This will install the necessary files into /opt/elasticsearch-curator and make a symlink at /usr/bin/curator that points to the curator binary in the aforementioned directory.
