    Anyone try ES 5 with XF?

    It worked at one point as I made some changes in the latest release for it, but I've seen some subsequent indication that changes have broken it again. (Elasticsearch breaks backwards compatibility more than any package I've worked with before...)

    So... what is the currently recommended version of ElasticSearch for use with XF/Enhanced Search?

    2.4 is fine. ES 5 isn't stable yet (it only just hit RC yesterday).

    Why would one want to update to ES 5? What are the benefits?

    For most XF installs, likely minimal really -- it doesn't change the things we support. There may be things like performance improvements. The same reasons you'd upgrade PHP or MySQL really.

    Does the xf-date-weighted.groovy and/or xf-date-weighted.mvel script still work with ES5? From what I can tell it goes crazy when you have it installed and fails to work :?

    Is this occurring with the recently released XFES 1.1.6?

    Switched back to ES2 in the meantime

    Try just copying the groovy script. I used that without any issues (with an out of the box config).

    Any noob steps to upgrade from 2.4 to 5?

    Hello Mike,
    Is it still true ? 2.4 version still most recommended for XFES 1.1.6 ?
    Thank you
