SearchEngine File Indexer add-on

This module adds (experimental) file indexing support for the SearchEngine module.

WARNING this module is currently considered experimental.

There's a good chance that installing it will cause errors on your site. Please backup your data before installing the module and/or enabling it. If you run into any problems, please open a GitHub issue at https://github.com/teppokoivula/SearchEngineFileIndexer/issues/.

Potential gotchas:

  • Files are indexed after page or field has been saved, while SearchEngine is creating the index. Indexing pages with large number of files or large files can take a long time, resulting in timeouts.
  • Files can contain a lot of data. Due to this, database level size limit for the index field could be reached.


  1. Install and configure SearchEngine, version 0.34.0 or later.
  2. Install SearchEngineFileIndexer, preferably via Composer (composer require teppokoivula/search-engine-file-indexer)
  3. If you installed SearchEngineFileIndexer via modules manager or file upload, run composer install in the directory of the module
  4. Configure SearchEngineFileIndexer
