Can't get ElasticSearch bundled with Bitbucket 5.0.0 up and running

SSL configuration.

Elastic Search configured to listen to https://localhost:7992/

Bitbucket and ssh, both, work properly.

Anyone facing similar issue?

Have you run through any of the troubleshooting steps available at Troubleshooting steps for Bitbucket Server Code Search?

Just based on the error you're seeing, it would imply that either Elasticsearch is not running or there is a firewall blocking the connection.

If you SSH into the server and run "curl http://localhost:7992", do you get a response?

Thanks! Very useful troubleshooting guide.

At the end, I had to 

- correct my password in, and 

- replace the https with http in
