How to Install ElasticSearch, Magento 2.4.1 Under Aliyun Web Host Centos 8?

By default, ElasticSearch 7 is needed for Magento 2.4. So we should install ElasticSearch 7 before we install Magento 2.4.

First Step, Check JDK is install or not, if not, install Install the JDK on CentOS.

We cannot install ElasticSearch 7 directly, we should check JDK on CentOS in installed or not, I run CentoOS 8, run:

$ java -version

If JDK is not installed, we should install it, by running the command:
yum -y install java-1.8.0-openjdk

Be sure to install the JDK and not the JRE.

Now we run java -version again, we should get:

openjdk version “1.8.0_272”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_272-b10)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.272-b10, mixed mode)

Second Step, Install Elasticsearch with RPM.

Download and install the RPM manually.

shasum -a 512 -c elasticsearch-7.10.1-x86_64.rpm.sha512

Compares the SHA of the downloaded RPM and the published checksum, which should output elasticsearch-{version}-x86_64.rpm: OK.

sudo rpm –install elasticsearch-7.10.1-x86_64.rpm

### NOT starting on installation, please execute the following statements to configure elasticsearch service to start automatically using systemd
sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Enable ElasticSearch service by simply running:

sudo systemctl enable elasticsearch.service


Verify it’s running:

<!– wp:code –>
<pre class=”wp-block-code”><code>curl -X GET “localhost:9200/?pretty”</code></pre>
<!– /wp:code –>

Should yield:

epoch timestamp cluster status shards pri relo init unassign pending_tasks max_task_wait_time active_shards_percent
1601396097 16:14:57 elasticsearch yellow 1 1 3 3 0 0 3 0 – 50.0%

If displays:
curl: (7) Failed to connect to localhost port 9200

cd /etc/elasticsearch/
vi elasticsearch.yml

save and exit.

Configure Elasticsearch within Magento
To configure Magento to use Elasticsearch:

Log in to the Magento Admin as an administrator.
Click Stores > Settings > Configuration > Catalog > Catalog > Catalog Search.
From the Search Engine list, select your Elasticsearch version.
Now, reindex everything:

bin/magento indexer:reindex

If you want to reset ElasticSearch indexes, here’s a handy command:

curl -X DELETE ‘http://localhost:9200/_all’
Third, Install Magento 2.4
Upload all files to web hosting.
PHP bin/magento setup:install –base-url= \
–db-host=localhost –db-name=magento –db-user=magento –db-password=magento \
–admin-firstname=Magento –admin-lastname=User – \
–admin-user=admin –admin-password=admin123 –language=en_US \
–currency=USD –timezone=America/Chicago –use-rewrites=1 \
–search-engine=elasticsearch7 – \

Elasticsearch 7 is installed on and connects on port 9200, Elasticsearch 7 is installed at your localhost, then use:

Elasticsearch 7 is installed on and connects on port 9200

PHP bin/magento setup:install –base-url= \
–db-host=localhost –db-name=cheapglasses –db-user=discountglasses –db-password=’YourPassWordHere’ \
–admin-firstname=sunglasses –admin-lastname=safetyglasses – \
–admin-user=admineye –admin-password=admineyewear –language=en_US \
–currency=USD –timezone=America/Chicago –use-rewrites=1 \
–search-engine=elasticsearch7 –elasticsearch-host=localhost \

Forth Step, 2.4 Fresh Install Admin Account with Two Factor Authentication – first time login, if we do not like to use Two Factor Authentication for the first time login, just run the command:

bin/magento module:disable Magento_TwoFactorAuth

Fifth, sometimes we may meet the following error message when we visit or login the new shop:
An error has happened during application run. See exception log for details.

Just run:
chmod -R 0777 var/ pub/ generated/

Install OpenJDK 11
Open a terminal window and enter the following:

sudo yum install java-11-openjdk-devel
Confirm any prompts, allow the process to finish, and verify the installation with:

java -version
