How to use this


  • A Linux machine with docker and docker-compose
  • 2 GB RAM at least
  • A valid TLS certificate (put into haproxy/ssl/private/YOUR_HOST_AND_DOMAIN.pem)

Edit haproxy.cfg with a new admin password (replace ADMINPW with something less known.) Adjust the external ports in the haproxy section in docker-compose.yml to match your open firewall ports.

Change the owner of the data/ directory and start the containers with

chown 991:991 data
docker-compose up -d

At this point you have an insecure (no accounts, no password) ELK with HTTPS. To add accounts, follow the instructions from
