I'm interested in learning to use ElasticSearch, so I thought I'd document how I set it up on my EC2 instance. Because I wanted to write code on my laptop, I needed to expose ElasticSearch over the public internet, which added a bit of extra complexity. Here is a rough outline of the process:
- Install ElasticSearch on my EC2 instance.
- Use supervisor to manage the ElasticSearch process.
- Use Nginx to create a publicly-visible HTTP endpoint with:
- Basic auth
- Self-signed SSL cert
- Install python locally and connect to my EC2 ElasticSearch server.
