    I take it that Elaticsearch is not useful unless Enhance Search addon is purchased and installed to Xenforo.

    That is correct. I would highly recommend it, though, if you can afford it.

    Is there a tutorial for installing ElasticSearch 8.x for centmin? Or is it even recommended?

    Late reply here, but assuming you want to use it with XenForo, I don't think ES8 is officially supported for it yet:

    ES 2.2 - Elasticsearch Version: 8.0.0

    Unless there is a specific reason for wanting to use ES8 I think ES7 should be fine.

    This has been an ongoing problem. I've installed elasticsearch successfully but after a few days the front end of certain forums return the following screen:

    It turns out that the Elasticsearch server is disconnected.

    I need to manually restart it (# service elasticsearch start) for everything to come back. But this happens again after a few days.

    I tried to increase the memory (in /etc/elasticsearch/jvm.options) for this server to
    Code (Text):
    -Xms1g
    -Xmx1g
    


    (It's a "4096.00 MB AMD High Performance" in Vultr)

    It's a behind-the-firewall development forum, not yet public.

    But the problem is still there. Any one can help on this please?

    Check your elasticsearch logs for clues in /var/log/elasticsearch IIRC. FYI, I wouldn't post your entire logs publicly though - check and mask any sensitive info. But if you can't figure it out yourself, might need to hire someone.

    Looks like it might be test.log seeing as it gets log rotated for timestamped .gz version too which would be older logs i.e. test-2023-08-14-1.log.gz
