Add it on-the-fly to your HumHub by activating it in the Modules menu! ("Administration -> Modules")

Apache SOLR Integration

Integrates Apache Solr software into the HumHub search subsystem.

Solr is highly reliable, scalable and fault tolerant, providing distributed indexing, replication and load-balanced querying, automated failover and recovery, centralized configuration and more. Solr powers the search and navigation features of many of the world's largest internet sites.

'search' => [
    'class' => 'humhub\modules\solr\engine\SolrSearch',
