Caution: This documentation is for eZ Publish legacy, from version 3.x to 5.x.
For 5.x documentation covering Platform see eZ Documentation Center, for difference between legacy and Platform see 5.x Architecture overview.


  • eZ Publish 4.6 or higher
  • Solr 3.1
  • Java Run-time Environment 6/1.6 or higher is mandatory
  • PHP Curl extension is recommended and mandatory for support
  • PHP posix and pcntl extensions are recommended to enable parallel indexing

Note: eZ Find includes an official version of Solr 3.1, but it can also run on any standard Solr 3.1 server provided by a third party (Linux distribution for instance). The only thing is to "inject" or merge the eZ Find schema.xml and solrconfig.xml with the third party Solr package.

  • optional requirements

    The php extensions posix et pcntl are needed to use multiple parallel subprocesses to index content.
    It is a good idea esp. to speed up initial indexation if the eZ Publish db is biggish.
