Advantages of Open Source
dkd strongly believes in Open Source. Not only because of the apparent advantage of being licence fee free. But also because Open Source is more than just cost savings. The idea of Open Source enables access to an enourmous global pool of knowledge accompanied by
- quality and security on the highest level,
- short development and update cycles, and
- unbounded extensibility and ability of integration
Public Version of Solr for TYPO3
You can always find Apache Solr for TYPO3 in the official TYPO3 Extension Repository (TER).
We recommend to use Composer to install and upgrade the Solr extensions, otherwise you have to download and replace the Extensions manually.
EXT:solr requires specific schemas and e.g. our Access Filter Plugin, all required components are stored in our configsets that can be found within EXT:solr/Resources/Private/Solr/configset, just copy the configset to your Solr server and configure the right configset in the core properties file. We also provide Docker images that contain all required configurations: hub.docker.com/r/typo3solr/ext-solr.
Existing installations need to re-index their sites as the index schema needed to be changed for the frontend user Access Filter Plugin and other improvements.
