About this board

I have installed cirrussearch inside mediawiki but it is not searching the word inside any uploaded documents.

Request someone to review and advise if any steps were missed:

Please note, the uploaded documents contains MS WORD, POWERPOINT, PDF'S, EXCEL, MSG (Outlook email) , TXT files.

I followed below steps:-

installed media wiki successfully.

installed elastica inside the extention folder.

installed cirrussearch inside the extention folder

after that I performed steps mentioned in README.txt file

--------------------------------------------------- Instructions in README.TXT file ----------------------------

All elastic versions prior to 5.3.1 have bugs that affect CirrusSearch:

- elastic versions before 5.3.x requires the following config in your LocalSettings.php:

  $CirrusSearchElasticQuirks = [ 'query_string_max_determinized_states' => true ];

- elastic versions before 5.3.1 suffer from a bug that prevent an index to be reindexed

  properly without missing docs when using multiple elasticsearch machines

- when using elastic prior to 5.5.2 with the extra plugin and the super_detect_noop script

  you must activate the "super_detect_noop_enable_native" option (see docs/settings.txt)

Place the CirrusSearch extension in your extensions directory.

Make sure you have the curl php library installed (sudo apt-get install php5-curl in Debian.)

You also need to install the Elastica MediaWiki extension.

Add this to LocalSettings.php:

wfLoadExtension( 'Elastica' );

require_once( "$IP/extensions/CirrusSearch/CirrusSearch.php" );

$wgDisableSearchUpdate = true;

Configure your search servers in LocalSettings.php if you aren't running Elasticsearch on localhost:

$wgCirrusSearchServers = [ 'elasticsearch0', 'elasticsearch1', 'elasticsearch2', 'elasticsearch3' ];

There are other $wgCirrusSearch variables that you might want to change from their defaults.

Now run this script to generate your elasticsearch index:

php $MW_INSTALL_PATH/extensions/CirrusSearch/maintenance/updateSearchIndexConfig.php

Now remove $wgDisableSearchUpdate = true from LocalSettings.php.  Updates should start heading to Elasticsearch.

Next bootstrap the search index by running:

php $MW_INSTALL_PATH/extensions/CirrusSearch/maintenance/forceSearchIndex.php --skipLinks --indexOnSkip

php $MW_INSTALL_PATH/extensions/CirrusSearch/maintenance/forceSearchIndex.php --skipParse

Note that this can take some time.  For large wikis read "Bootstrapping large wikis" below.

Once that is complete add this to LocalSettings.php to funnel queries to ElasticSearch:

$wgSearchType = 'CirrusSearch';
