Connection attempt failed for Elasticsearch

I created this BitBucket server and when started it does show that the elasticsearch started, see below logs,

Starting Atlassian Bitbucket as the current user

The output shows that the elasticsearch started when bitbucket service was started.


But I am not able to test the connection. Even when I do (ps -ef | grep bitbucket ) I do not see any service running for elasticsearch.

The issue was, I was  starting the server with  root user, for some reason the root user prevents the starting on elastic cache. I switched to the recommended user and the elastic search service started on its  own.
