The Swish-E Indexer module is an implementation of of the open source Swish-E Search Engine ( This module will index uploaded files and will allow users to search over the full text of those documents.

The module requires the installation of the Swish-E search engine and several different file filters to support fulltext indexing of various file types. The following file types are currently supported:

Microsoft Word -- catdoc
Microsoft Excel -- xls2csv
Microsoft Powerpoint - ppthtml
PDF -- pdftotext
RTF -- unrtf

This module requires access to install several binary files and is probably not suitable for working in a shared web hosting environment.

To accomplish basic searching of files, check out the "Search Files" module - and for robust searching try Apache SOLR -
