curl 52 empty response - elasticsearch and kibana not working after trying to set up Search Guard

I tried to follow instructions on how to install the Search Guard, however, failed somewhere along the way… I am new to this and really have no clue how to fix it. when i try to do :
curl -XGET ‘http://localhost:9200
curl: (52) Empty reply from server

curl -k -X GET ‘https://localhost:9200

Search Guard not initialized (SG11).

How do I fix it?? I tried to research the problem but I dont know enough to understand how to fix this.

Thanks in advance.

  • Search Guard - 6.2.2 -21.0 and Elasticsearch version - 6.2.2

  • System version - Ubuntu server

  • Search Guard configuration files

elasticsearch.yml:

======================== Elasticsearch Configuration =========================

···

NOTE: Elasticsearch comes with reasonable defaults for most settings.

Before you set out to tweak and tune the configuration, make sure you

understand what are you trying to accomplish and the consequences.

The primary way of configuring a node is via this file. This template lists

the most important settings you may want to configure for a production cluster.

Please consult the documentation for further information on configuration options:

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/index.html

---------------------------------- Cluster -----------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for your cluster:

#cluster.name: my-application

------------------------------------ Node ------------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for the node:

#node.name: node-1

Add custom attributes to the node:

#node.attr.rack: r1

----------------------------------- Paths ------------------------------------

Path to directory where to store the data (separate multiple locations by comma):

path.data: /var/lib/elasticsearch

Path to log files:

path.logs: /var/log/elasticsearch

----------------------------------- Memory -----------------------------------

Lock the memory on startup:

#bootstrap.memory_lock: true

Make sure that the heap size is set to about half the memory available

on the system and that the owner of the process is allowed to use this

limit.

Elasticsearch performs poorly when the system is swapping the memory.

---------------------------------- Network -----------------------------------

Set the bind address to a specific IP (IPv4 or IPv6):

#network.host: 192.168.0.1

Set a custom port for HTTP:

#http.port: 9200

For more information, consult the network module documentation.

--------------------------------- Discovery ----------------------------------

Pass an initial list of hosts to perform discovery when new node is started:

The default list of hosts is [“127.0.0.1”, “[::1]”]

#discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: [“host1”, “host2”]

Prevent the “split brain” by configuring the majority of nodes (total number of master-eligible nodes / 2 + 1):

#discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes:

For more information, consult the zen discovery module documentation.

---------------------------------- Gateway -----------------------------------

Block initial recovery after a full cluster restart until N nodes are started:

#gateway.recover_after_nodes: 3

For more information, consult the gateway module documentation.

---------------------------------- Various -----------------------------------

Require explicit names when deleting indices:

#action.destructive_requires_name: true

Did you run the sgadmin tool in /usr/share/elasticsearch/kibana/tools?
