Configuration for Fess

(from github.com/dracorp)
Hello
I had installed Fess from zip archive. It worked well. I decided to connect it with standalone Elasticsearch also from zip archive.
But after restarting Fess I lost configuration: crawlers, users, labels, and schedulers.
Where they are kept?
For Fess I’ve added only below configuration:

-D fess.es.http_address=http://localhost:9200
-D fess.es.transport_addresses=localhost:9300
-D fess.dictionary.path="/var/lib/elasticsearch/config

Are there somewhere in fess/es/data/node_1/nodes/0?

Configurations are in .fess_config index.

I cannot find any my configurations in fess/app/WEB-INF/classes/fess_indices/.fess_config. But I’ve found the new configurations in /var/lib/elasticsearch/data/nodes/0/indices.
I’m using:

  • fess-11.4.2
  • elastisearch-5.6.3

How I can import previous data from fess/es/data/node_1/nodes/0 to new the location, for standalone elasticsearch?

$ du -sh 0
5.6G    0

Enough knowledge of elasticearch is required…
I think it’s better to use backup/restore.

Thx, tomorrow I’ll try. But why this configuration (crawler, label, account, scheduler etc) is kept in elasticsearch data directory not in .fess_config?
And another issue related with “migration”. After moving content of data directory from Fess to elasticsearch and back to Fess I don’t have access to my data via Fess web interface.

From my side EOT, thx. That is too much for orig question.

Fess is scalable system. Using index, Multiple Fess instances are able to share configurations.

It makes sense, thx
