Multi-server setup

Multi-server setup explained

As extension is using filesystem based index (stored in var/indexer folder in your magento root folder)

it is important that every installation (frontend and backend) has access to it

ADMIN SERVER(s) - should have be a MASTER and should have full access to it

FRONTEND SERVER(s) - should sync (PULL) from MASTER servers so index is always up to date


As all operations such as :

  • product import
  • product updates
  • category updates
  • product attributes updates
  • reindexing

happen generally on ADMIN server, other FRONTEND servers much sync var/index folder every couple minutes

We strongly recommend using rsync for it as it can save a lot of time and bandwidth by doing incremental sync



Please do full rsync sync with --delete option to make sure that folders are identical
