Installing solr search with Magento Enterprise Edition

Solr

Recently I struggled a lot to integrate solr search with Magento as it is one of the most popular search engine nowadays.

Most of the informations are covered here: How to Use the Solr Search Engine With Magento Enterprise Edition .

What is the process you have to follow to make solr work with Magento?

  • Grab the solr version compatible with your Magento enterprise edition.
  • Install solr in your system.
  • Copy all the files from [magento-installation-root]/lib/Apache/Solr/Conf to [solr-installation-folder]/example/solr/conf
  • Start start.jar file available in [solr-installation-folder]/example using command java -jar start.jar .
  • Test solr connection in Magento admin panel. Successful??

Solr Connection test

  • Save the configurations and server settings as it is. By default solr runs at port 8983.
  • Now everything is ready. But most of the times you wont be able to see products in your catalog. Why?? Because Solr needs re-indexing of the documents.

How to re-index all the documents ?

  1. First go to shell(magento root) folder using command prompt  [magento-installation-root]/shell
  2. Check the current status of indexing using php indexer.php –status . Here you may see all the index types with current status.
  3. Re-index all the data using php indexer.php –reindexall . You can also re-index individual data’s as php indexer.php –reindex catalog_product_attribute

On completion of the re-indexing you will see

Solr re-indexing

Wooha. Solr re-indexing is successful. Now you should be able to see products in your categories and your solr search should be enabled.
