Installing Cloudera Search
Before you get started, review Cloudera Search Requirements to ensure you have the necessary prerequisites.
You can install Cloudera Search in one of two ways:
- Using the Cloudera Manager installer, as described in Installing Cloudera Search with Cloudera Manager. This is the recommended technique for doing a reliable and verified Search installation.
- Using the manual process described in Installing Cloudera Search without Cloudera Manager. This process requires you configure access to Cloudera's Search repository and then install Search packages.
: Depending on which installation approach
you use, Search may be installed to different locations.
- Installing Search using Cloudera Manager using parcels results in changes under /opt/cloudera/parcels.
- Installing using packages, either manually or using Cloudera Manager, results in changes to various locations throughout the file system. Common locations for changes include /usr/lib/, /etc/default/, and /usr/share/doc/.
