I did a test install of Seafile PE 10.0.11 using the provided docker-compose.yml and editing only volume paths & passwords. Running docker as root. Everything seems to work except elasticsearch. On the main screen I get no search results. When I expand the search box, I see a red “Internal Server Error” message under the search box.
Per another post, I confirmed in my seafevents.conf
[INDEX FILES] external_es_server = true es_host = elasticsearch es_port = 9200 enabled = true interval = 10m
Per that same post, I tried running
docker exec -it seafile /opt/seafile/seafile-server-latest/pro/pro.py search --update
The last msg I get from that command is:
[ERROR] seafes:158 start_index_local: Index process init error: AuthenticationException(401, 'None').
So… then I tried setting credentials as environment variables for elasticsearch in the docker-compose.yml and, per the docs, adding the following to my seafevents.conf.
## From 9.0.7 pro, Seafile supports connecting to Elasticsearch through username and password, you need to configure username and password for the Elasticsearch server username = elastic # username to connect to Elasticsearch password = elastic_password # password to connect to Elasticsearch
But, that didn’t help. I can manually curl -u with the credentials I created, but Seafile still returns the same error.
Then I tried disabling elasticsearch authentication completely by adding the following to the docker-compose.yml:
This worked. I no longer see the Authentication error when running pro.py search --update and search works in the GUI.
It seems to me Seafile is, out-of-the-box, trying to send some incorrect credentials to elasticsearch or Seafile is not sending credentials elasticsearch is expecting.
Anyone see this before? Or, is running elasticsearch with security disabled reasonable?
