Apache Solr Setup in cPanel

Apache Solr Setup in cPanel

Apache Solr is an open source search platform built upon a Java library called Lucene. Solr can index and search multiple sites and return recommendations for related content based on the search query’s taxonomy because of this reason Solr is known as a popular search platform for Websites. Solr is also a popular search platform for enterprise search because it can be used to index and search documents and email attachments. Solr works with Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Extensible Mark-up Language (XML). It also provides application program interfaces (APIs) for JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), Python, and Ruby.

In cPanel & WHM version 64, we introduced IMAP Full-Text Search Indexing (powered by Solr), which provides fast search capabilities for Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) mailboxes. This significantly improves the speed and convenience of the search experience for iOS device, Microsoft Outlook®, SquirrelMail, Horde, Roundcube, and Mozilla Thunderbird users.

We can enable this feature via the WHM’s Manage Plugins interface.

How to enable Solr feature in WHM

We can enable this feature via the scripts also. Please check the following details.

The install_dovecot_fts Script

To enables Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) Full-Text Search (FTS) Indexing (powered by Solr), which provides fast search capabilities for IMAP mailboxes, we use the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/install_dovecot_fts script. FTS significantly improves the speed and convenience of the search experience for iOS device, Microsoft Outlook®, SquirrelMail, Horde, Roundcube, and Mozilla Thunderbird users.

 

The /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/install_dovecot_fts script

If you want to use this script, you need to run the following command as the root user:

#/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/install_dovecot_fts

The /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/install_dovecot_fts script does not accept arguments.

When the script successfully completes, you will receive a message similar to the following:

To uninstall the Dovecot FTS indexing, run the following command:

#/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/uninstall_dovecot_fts
