Docker Compose for Elasticsearch and Kibana 7.9

2021-07-13 21:38:05 +0100

In this post, I will cover how you can set up Elasticsearch and Kibana with a single docker-compose.yml file.

Set up and install ELK stack on Ubuntu server

You must run sudo sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144 to get Elasticsearch to work. To make this permanent, run sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf and add vm.max_map_count=262144 to the end of the file on a new line, then save and exit.

Go to the directory with the files in. Make sure you’ve used SFTP to put the docker-compose.yml file in there first. For example you may need to use this command cd /home/administrator/docker/elk-stack

Install it all with docker-compose up -d and you’re finished! It really is that simple.

The compose file is as below.
