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.

Note

The package 'groonga' is the mininum 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)

See Server section about details.
