Elasticsearch not working after upgrading bitbucket from 4.14.4 to 7.6.2


I need a help associated with Elasticsearch. I've upgraded bitbucket from 4.14.4 to 7.6.2 recently. After the upgrade, the elasticsearch is not working. When running the start script, the console shows that "bundled elasticsearch has started successfully" but it is exiting somehow. I've gone through the logs and the logs show that
"Unable to establish a connection to Elasticsearch during index synchronisation."

After verifying, can you perform the following:

  • Stop Bitbucket server
  • Delete file
  • Restart Bitbucket server
  • Confirm if Elasticsearch connects successfully

Hi @Fernando De La Cruz Garelli ,

I've searched for file in the server, but I couldn't find it. Any specific location to search for it?
