This guide covers installation, deployment, and server administration processes to get LucidWorks Enterprise installed on your server.
Installation describes how to install and uninstall LucidWorks Enterprise, including system requirements. Two installation modes are available: a wizard-like graphical interface and command line installation for headless servers. Installation time should take no longer than a few minutes.
If LucidWorks Enterprise needs to be installed on multiple servers with the same options, automation is possible by creating a script. Read more at Automating Installation Options for Installation to Multiple Environments.
The installer provides an option to start LucidWorks Enterprise. However, there are other points during operation of the application where it may be necessary to start and then restart the application. Information on how to do that can be found at Starting and Stopping LucidWorks Enterprise.
As you start to use LucidWorks Enterprise, an understanding of the directory structure, where to find logs, and how to work with the components will be invaluable. That information is described at System Directories and Logs and Working with LucidWorks Platform Components.
Those customers migrating from v1.7 or v1.8 of LucidWorks Enterprise now have a migration path that can be followed to move to v2.0. There are several steps to this process, which are described at Migrating from a Prior Version.
