I've seen that there's some conversation about adding Elasticsearch to Cloudron - which is great, but it reads like the plan is to have it in its own container, which for my usecase would not be great.
Is it possible for me to install it through the console in my LAMP app? I tried to use apt-get to do so (following these directions ), but to no avail.
@Nicolas Cloudron apps are deployed in readonly containers and you thus cannot install code/new packages in existing apps. Can you explain why deploying it in it's own container would not work in your case? AFAIK, That's the correct way to deploy elasticsearch.

Perhaps my understanding is erroneous, but I was under the impression that apps in containers aren't able to interact with each other on the server and so these things would have to be in the same container to engage with each other appropriately.
However, as I review the documentation using Elasticsearch with the forum software I'd be attaching to it, I realize that as long as the container is able to access the port necessary it should be fine - in which case, I guess I'll just wait patiently for an Elasticsearch app to be available!
@Nicolas Indeed, current plan is to implement Elastic search as an addon and not as an app. This will help apps like Nextcloud etc have document search as well. I will move this port to Feature Requests since it's a platform level change.
If you want to use this right away, there are two approaches:
- use an external elastic search (i.e install it on a separate server and have the LAMP app access that)
- alternately, create a cloudron package and install elastic search as an app. You can install this package on
elastic.domain.comand then your app can use it directly.

@girish Getting kind of excited when I read this. Does this mean that Full Text Search for the Cloudron e-mail server could then be in the cards, too?
I think dovecot has to use lucene/sole because the elastic search is only in dovecot enterprise.

@girish I found this here. Dovecot Enterprise have developed their own FTS solution that comes with the commercial version of Dovecot.
All the other referenced solutions are working with the FOSS version of Dovecot, so it says.
I keep pushing and hoping....:-)
