Wordpress & WPSOLR integraation on Cloudways
I see that cloud ways supports elastic press plugin on wordpress after activating ES on server side. Yet, there is another plugin that has much better functionalities named WPSOLr.
When I tried to use it, it requires ES v 5.0+ (with mapper attachments plugin) or SOLR on the server. Now Cloudways have option of ES 5.4, but mapper attachments plugin not there, and we can't install it due to root access.Due to that, I had to use outside hosts just to host my ES/SOLR index $40per month.
I would suggest that cloudwaays provide the mapper attachments plugin to ES5.4 or Add SOLR integration, and provide a documentation on how to integrate WPSOLR plugin rather than current elastic press.
This would allow me to upgrade my current server on cloud ways for the index hosting/ or have another server on cloud ways for that, rather than going for another company.
Additionally, wpsolr has drupal support.
Appreciate if you could look into this, as I believe it is simple for you to integrate.

Elasticsearch mapper attachement plugin is now deprecated, and replaced with https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/plugins/current/ingest-attachment.html
WPSOLR is now using the ingest attachment plugin by default:
