Install ELK On Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux -

If you're in a situation where you manage large amonts of data logs, the ELK stack is exactly what you're looking for. The ELK stack combines Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana into a simple, yet powerful, open source stack that lets you manage large amounts of logged data from a convenient graphical web interface. All three tools are developed by Elastic, so they work in tandem perfectly, and they're very easy to get set up on your Ubuntu system.

It works, but I have a problem . My kibana instance is accessible directly from the port 5601 without password. And from the port 80 it ask me for password. How I block access from the port 5601 ?

Hi. Thanks for the guide.

You only have a small typo in the instructions:

Should be: sudo rm /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default

Updated…!! thank you


Needed to add the following before installing java:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update


What ports are ElasticSearch available over? I tried connecting to 9200 / 9300 and can’t get a connection established. Is there a missing step here?
