See Using Manticore in Docker for more details about using Manticore in Docker.

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 http://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 http://repo.manticoresearch.com/manticore-repo.noarch.rpm
sudo yum --enablerepo manticore-dev 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 http://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/lib/manticore/
}

APT repository

The easiest way to install Manticore in Ubuntu/Debian/Mint is by using our APT repository

Install the repository:

wget http://repo.manticoresearch.com/manticore-repo.noarch.deb
sudo dpkg -i manticore-repo.noarch.deb
sudo apt update

(install wget if it's not installed; install gnupg2 if apt-key fails).

Then install Manticore Search:

sudo apt 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:

wget http://repo.manticoresearch.com/manticore-dev-repo.noarch.deb
sudo dpkg -i manticore-dev-repo.noarch.deb
sudo apt update
sudo apt install manticore manticore-columnar-lib

Standalone DEB packages

You can also download individual .deb files from our site.

More packages you may need

For indexer

Manticore package depends on zlib and ssl libraries, nothing else is strictly required. However if you plan to use indexer to create indexes from external storages you'll need to install appropriate client libraries. To know what exactly libraries indexer requires run it and look at the top of it's output:

$ sudo -u manticore indexer

Here you can see mentions of libodbc.so.2, libexpat.so.1, libmysqlclient.so.20, and libpq.so.5.

Below is a reference table with list of all the client libraries for different Debian/Ubuntu versions:

Distr MySQL PostgreSQL XMLpipe UnixODBC
Ubuntu Trusy libmysqlclient.so.18 libpq.so.5 libexpat.so.1 libodbc.so.1
Ubuntu Xenial libmysqlclient.so.20 libpq.so.5 libexpat.so.1 libodbc.so.2
Ubuntu Bionic libmysqlclient.so.20 libpq.so.5 libexpat.so.1 libodbc.so.2
Ubuntu Focal libmysqlclient.so.21 libpq.so.5 libexpat.so.1 libodbc.so.2
Debian Jessie libmysqlclient.so.18 libpq.so.5 libexpat.so.1 libodbc.so.2
Debian Stretch libmariadbclient.so.18 libpq.so.5 libexpat.so.1 libodbc.so.2
Debian Buster libmariadb.so.3 libpq.so.5 libexpat.so.1 libodbc.so.2

To find packages that provide the libraries you can use, for example apt-file:

apt-file find libmysqlclient.so.20
libmysqlclient20: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmysqlclient.so.20
libmysqlclient20: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmysqlclient.so.20.2.0
libmysqlclient20: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmysqlclient.so.20.3.6

Note that you only need libraries for the types of storages you're going to use. So if you plan to index only from mysql then you might need to install only the MySQL library (in the above case libmysqlclient20).

Finally install the needed packages:

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient20 libodbc1 libpq5 libexpat1

If you aren't going to use indexer tool at all, you don't need to find and install any libraries.

To enable CJK tokenization support, the official packages contain binaries with embedded ICU library and include ICU data file. They are independent from any ICU runtime library which might be available on your system, and can't be upgraded.
