Install Search API for Drupal 8, 9, and 10

In order for Drupal to work with Apache Solr, we need to add the Search API module. This module provides a generic interface for search backends, including Solr. Furthermore, it adds several features to search without the need for custom code.

In this tutorial, we'll:

  • Describe why Search API is necessary to use Solr with Drupal
  • Identify a Search API server

By the end of this tutorial you should be able to install the Search API and Search API Solr modules, and create the Search API server configuration required to connect Drupal and Solr.
