I would like to experiment with elastic before using it for a research project I am developing. The project data is contained in unstructured pdf files, but for this exercise I am using Wikipedia.

My computer is running Windows 10.

I have downloaded wikipedia as html files into a folder called 'en.wikipedia.org' on a usb drive called 'brown3' connected to a synology NAS drive called 'synology2'.

The path to my folder is therefore \\synology2\brown3\en.wikipedia.org

I have installed kibana 6 with the ingest plugin

I have read countless pages on elastic.co and viewed loads of youtube videos but have been unable to translate their general advice to my specific needs and so I am still unable to get elastic/kibana to index my files.

Though the text on wiki pages is organized using headings, sub-headings, numbered lists and bulleted lists, I want all the text to be indexed as just text, to match my unstructured pdf files.

I would greatly appreciate your help.
