Before installing Search Lucene API, make sure you review the Installing contributed modules tutorial. Search Lucene API is installed like any standard Drupal module with one exception; The required Zend Framework components must be downloaded separately. Due to Drupal's strict licensing policy regarding non-GPL code, the ZF components cannot be bundled with the module on Drupal.org. However, no action other than retrieving the files from the Search Lucene API Library project on SourceForge.net and moving the extracted directory to the correct location is required. Complete installation instructions are as follows:
- Download the Search Lucene API module from the project page. Make sure the version of the module matches your version of Drupal. For example, the 6.x-2.0 version is suitable for Drupal 6 but will not work for Drupal 5.
- Extract the files. Modules downloaded from drupal.org are compressed to reduce their size and must be extracted before they can be used on your website. The result of this action will be a 'luceneapi' directory containing the module's source code files. For a tutorial on how to extract compressed files, please refer to the “Installing contributed modules” tutorial.
- Download the required Zend Framework components from the Search Lucene API Library project on SourceForge.net. Match the release of the ZF components to the version of the module downloaded in step 1. For example, the 6.x-2.0 version of Search Lucene API requires the 6.x-2.0 version of the ZF components. If there is no exact match, download the latest available version of the ZF components up to, but not exceeding, the minor version of the downloaded module. The Status report page in the administration section of your website will alert you if the ZF components require updating.
