In the following, the Elasticsearch version 6.8.23 is used and only serves as an example for the latest version of the 6.x version series, which you can download at the time of your installation.

Unpacking the ZIP archive

Unpack the ZIP archive that you have just downloaded in a Archiv in a suited system path of your hard drive.

This documentation assumes the folder structure recommended by us. For this reason, Elasticsearch is unpacked at this point in the folder C:\bluespice\bin\elasticsearch-6.8.23. If you have individual wishes, adjust these paths according to your own understanding.
