I’m trying to get Sonarqube 8.4 to run on Ubuntu linux. I followed the documentation and updated the /etc/sysctl.conf with the suggested items.
The sonar.log is showing the following error:
: max file descriptors  for elasticsearch process is too low, increase to at least 
I’ve googled the error, followed the advice to update the /etc/security/limits.conf file to increase the limits for the “sonarqube” user that I use to run the sonar.sh file, but it hasn’t fixed the issue.
Any advice is appreciated.
