Installing Graph on a DEB/RPM Package Installationedit
If you use the DEB/RPM packages to install Elasticsearch, by default Elasticsearch is installed in
/usr/share/elasticsearch and the configuration files are stored in
/etc/elasticsearch. (For the
complete list of default paths, see Directory Layout in
the Elasticsearch Reference.)
To install the License plugin and the Graph plugin on a DEB/RPM package installation, you need to run
bin/plugin install from the
/usr/share/elasticsearch directory with superuser permissions:
cd /usr/share/elasticsearch sudo bin/plugin install license sudo bin/plugin install graph
If the configuration files are not in
/etc/elasticsearch you need to specify the location of
