WARNING: Version 1.5 of Elasticsearch has passed its EOL date.
This documentation is no longer being maintained and may be removed. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
We also have repositories available for APT and YUM based distributions. Note that we only provide binary packages, but no source packages, as the packages are created as part of the Elasticsearch build.
We have split the major versions in separate urls to avoid accidental upgrades across major version. For all 0.90.x releases use 0.90 as version number, for 1.0.x use 1.0, for 1.1.x use 1.1 etc.
We use the PGP key D88E42B4, Elasticsearch Signing Key, with fingerprint
4609 5ACC 8548 582C 1A26 99A9 D27D 666C D88E 42B4
to sign all our packages. It is available from http://pgp.mit.edu.
Download and install the Public Signing Key:
wget -qO - https://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch | sudo apt-key add -
Add the repository definition to your
echo "deb http://packages.elastic.co/elasticsearch/1.5/debian stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
echo method described above to add the Elasticsearch repository. Do not use
as it will add a
deb-src entry as well, but we do not provide a source package.
If you have added the
deb-src entry, you will see an error like
Unable to find expected entry 'main/source/Sources' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
Just delete the
deb-src entry from the
/etc/apt/sources.list file and the installation should work as expected.
Run apt-get update and the repository is ready for use. You can install it with:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elasticsearch
Configure Elasticsearch to automatically start during bootup:
sudo update-rc.d elasticsearch defaults 95 10
Download and install the public signing key:
rpm --import https://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch
Add the following in your
in a file with a
.repo suffix, for example
[elasticsearch-1.5] name=Elasticsearch repository for 1.5.x packages baseurl=http://packages.elastic.co/elasticsearch/1.5/centos gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=http://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch enabled=1
And your repository is ready for use. You can install it with:
yum install elasticsearch
Configure Elasticsearch to automatically start during bootup. If your distribution is using SysV init, then you will need to run:
The repositories do not work with older rpm based distributions that still use RPM v3, like CentOS5.
chkconfig --add elasticsearch
Otherwise if your distribution is using systemd:
sudo /bin/systemctl daemon-reload sudo /bin/systemctl enable elasticsearch.service
