OpenSearchServer is a powerful, enterprise-class, search engine program. Using the web user interface, the crawlers (web, file, database, ...) and the REST/RESTFul API you will be able to integrate quickly and easily advanced full-text search capabilities in your application. OpenSearchServer runs on Linux/Unix/BSD/Windows.

  • FILE -> Shell to start the server on Unix
  • FILE start.bat -> Batch to start the server on Windows
  • FILE NOTICE.txt -> the third-party license informations

Edit the parameters
