This module provides a Solr backend for the Search API module.
The backend uses, like the popular Apache Solr Search Integration module, Apache Solr servers for indexing and searching content. It has great performance, is suitable even for use on large commercial websites and supports facets and multi-index searches.


Requirements are:

  • The Search API module, of course.
  • An Apache Solr server which can be individually configured (or has a configuration compatible with this module).

For further details see the module's handbook documentation.

If you do not want to or cannot install your own Solr server, there are a number of web Solr hosts which are compatible with the Search API (either because they have it as an option, or they allow uploading custom configurations). Some of them are:

(This is a free information service, I do not endorse any of these products. If you want your Solr hosting service to be listed here, please contact me.)

The module's D8 version is currently under development on GitHub. It will be moved back to this project before its release, though.
