    So far I have installed the add-on and enabled Elastic Search.

    Nothing is happening?

    Do I need to program or set something else?
    What are : Elasticsearch Server Details?

    Is there a step by step guide for non programmers.

    Message on options
    Elasticsearch does not appear to be running but is enabled as the search system.

    Message when I search
    XenForo_Exception: Elasticsearch server returned no response. Is it running? - library/XenES/Search/SourceHandler/ElasticSearch.php:878

    That guide is pretty outdated and not what I'd recommend someone use. I'm also not sure that Floren keeps the Axivo repo updated, but that's a risk anytime you're using a repackaged repo rather than the source.

    These days, ElasticSearch itself has solid repo with solid defaults for ES v2, so I'd suggest starting there and following their guides for Debian/Ubuntu or RHEL/CentOS. The defaults are pretty sane, you'll likely want to set the number of shards to 1 and the replicas to 0, and adjust ES_MAX_HEAP_SIZE based on the size of your forum/server.

    ES v2 also changed the default so localhost connections are the only ones allowed unless you specify otherwise, so out of the box it's significantly more secure.
