Installing Manticore packages on RedHat and CentOS

Supported releases:

  • CentOS 7 and RHEL 7
  • CentOS 8 and RHEL 8
  • CentOS Stream 8

YUM repository

The easiest way to install Manticore in RedHat/Centos is by using our YUM repository:

Install the repository:

sudo yum install https://repo.manticoresearch.com/manticore-repo.noarch.rpm

Then install Manticore Search:

sudo yum install manticore manticore-columnar-lib

(you can skip manticore-columnar-lib - package for the Manticore Columnar Library, if you are sure you don't need it).

Development packages

If you prefer "Nightly" (development) versions do:

sudo yum install https://repo.manticoresearch.com/manticore-repo.noarch.rpm
sudo yum install manticore manticore-columnar-lib

Standalone RPM packages

You can also download standalone rpm files from our site and install them using tools rpm or yum.

More packages you may need

For indexer

If you plan to use indexer to create indexes from external sources, you'll need to make sure you have installed corresponding client libraries in order to make available of indexing sources you want. The line below will install all of them at once; feel free to use it as is, or to reduce it to install only libraries you need (for only mysql sources - just mysql-libs should be enough, and unixODBC is not necessary).

sudo yum install mysql-libs postgresql-libs expat unixODBC

In CentOS Stream 8 you may need to run:

dnf install mariadb-connector-c

if you get error sql_connect: MySQL source wasn't initialized. Wrong name in dlopen? trying to build a plain index from MySQL.

Ukrainian lemmatizer

The lemmatizer requires Python 3.9+. Make sure you have it installed and that it's configured with --enable-shared.

Here's how to install Python 3.9 and the Ukrainian lemmatizer in Centos 7/8:

# install Manticore Search and UK lemmatizer from YUM repository
yum -y install https://repo.manticoresearch.com/manticore-repo.noarch.rpm
yum -y install manticore manticore-lemmatizer-uk

# install packages needed for building Python
yum groupinstall "Development Tools" -y
yum install openssl-devel libffi-devel bzip2-devel wget -y

# download, build and install Python 3.9
cd ~
wget https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.9.2/Python-3.9.2.tgz
tar xvf Python-3.9.2.tgz
cd Python-3.9*/
./configure --enable-optimizations --enable-shared
make -j8 altinstall

# update linker cache
ldconfig

# install pymorphy2 and UK dictionary
pip3.9 install pymorphy2[fast]
pip3.9 install pymorphy2-dicts-uk

After you have all installed make sure you have the following in your Manticore Search configuration file (/etc/manticoresearch/manticore.conf by default):

common {
    plugin_dir = /usr/local/manticore/lib/
}
