How to Install Elasticsearch in Windows?

We explained what Elasticsearch is in our previous article. You can check it by clicking here. Now we will install Elasticsearch on Windows 10.

Elasticsearch Installation on Windows 10

We download the file with the .zip extension from the Elastichsearch site. You can download Elastichsearch from the link below.

https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch

download Elastichsearch
Download Elastichsearch

 

We extract the downloaded “elasticsearch-7.12.1-windows-x86_64.zip” file from the zip.

elasticsearch-7.12.1-windows-x86_64.zip
elasticsearch-7.12.1-windows-x86_64.zip

 

Then we open the Windows PowerShell program.

We go to the location “elasticsearch-7.12.1-windows-x86_64 \elasticsearch-7.12.1\bin“. Run the “elasticsearch” file here.
