groonga - An open-source fulltext search engine and column store.

2.4. Ubuntu

This section describes how to install Groonga related deb packages on Ubuntu. You can install them by apt.

We distribute both 32-bit and 64-bit packages but we strongly recommend a 64-bit package for server. You should use a 32-bit package just only for tests or development. You will encounter an out of memory error with a 32-bit package even if you just process medium size data.

2.4.1. PPA (Personal Package Archive)

The Groonga APT repository for Ubuntu uses PPA (Personal Package Archive) on Launchpad. You can install Groonga by APT from the PPA.

Here are supported Ubuntu versions:

  • 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin
  • 13.10 Saucy Salamander
  • 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr

Enable the universe repository to install Groonga:

% sudo apt-get -y install software-properties-common
% sudo add-apt-repository -y universe

Add the ppa:groonga/ppa PPA to your system:

% sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:groonga/ppa
% sudo apt-get update

Install:

% sudo apt-get -y install groonga

Note

groonga package is the minimum set of fulltext search engine. If you want to use Groonga for server use, you can install additional preconfigured packages.

There are three packages for server use.

  • groonga-server-http (simple HTTP protocol based server package)
  • groonga-httpd (nginx and HTTP protocol based server package)
  • groonga-server-gqtp (GQTP protocol based server package)
