Legacy Mysql Search

It's a magento2-module for the metapackage.

The news sometimes isn't good, but there is always a way out. Yes, MySQL is no longer supported for search since Magento 2.4. And you must install Elasticsearch 7.6.x before upgrading to the latest Magento version.

Elastic search is a great solution. Even so, a lot of our customers still prefer using hostings that don’t have it. Let us help you to install Magento 2.4 without Elastic search enabled.

We released the Legacy MySQL Search module for Magento 2

We integrated Magento 2.3.5 MySQL Search mechanism with Magento 2.4. The Legacy MySQL Search module enables a new value in the Search Engine drop-down of Catalog Search config settings.

So you don’t need things to get complicated. You have simply to choose the "Legacy MySQL (Deprecated) value" in drop-down.



For clients

There are several ways to install extension for clients:

  1. If you've bought the product at Magento's Marketplace - use Marketplace installation instructions

  2. Otherwise, you have two options:

For maintainers
cd <magento_root>
composer config repositories.swissup composer
composer require swissup/module-search-mysql-legacy --prefer-source --ignore-platform-reqs
bin/magento module:enable Swissup_SearchMysqlLegacy Swissup_Core
bin/magento setup:upgrade --safe-mode=1
bin/magento setup:di:compile
bin/magento indexer:reindex catalogsearch_fulltext
