Installing Coveo Platform Software Components

This section contains procedures describing how to install the various on-premises Coveo Platform software components (see Coveo Platform On-Premises Products and About Back-End and Front-End Component Versions).

The procedures that you need to perform depend on the server topology that you selected (see Coveo Platform Deployment Overview).

Coveo for Sitecore case

Important: When you want to use Coveo within a Sitecore site, deploy Coveo for Sitecore (see Coveo for Sitecore Installation and Upgrade Guide).

Single-server case

  1. Download the latest CES version (x64) from the Coveo website.

    Note: Contact Coveo Support when you need the 32-bit version.

  2. Install Coveo Enterprise Search (CES), the main back-end component hosting your index (see Installing CES on the Master Server).

  3. Install at least one type of search interface: 

    1. Use the Coveo JavaScript Search when you want developers to easily customize search pages (see Getting Started with the JavaScript Search Framework). Because Coveo JavaScript Search pages communicate with CES through a REST search API, you need to first install the search API (see Installing the Coveo Search API) .

    2. Use the Coveo .NET Front-End when you want to get an out-of-the-box set of enterprise search interfaces that an administrator can customize using the .NET Interface Editor (see Installing Coveo .NET Front-End).

Multiple-server cases

  1. Download the latest CES version (x64) from the Coveo website.

    Note: Contact Coveo Support when you need the 32-bit version.

  2. Install Coveo Enterprise Search (CES), the main back-end component hosting your index on a dedicated machine (see Installing CES on the Master Server).

  3. When you want one or more servers responding to queries, install one or more Mirror servers on separate dedicated machines(see Installing CES Mirror Components).

  4. Install at least one type of search interface: 

    1. Use the Coveo JavaScript Search when you want developers to easily integrate and customize a search page into one or more websites or repositories (see Getting Started with the JavaScript Search Framework). Coveo JavaScript Search pages communicate with CES through a REST search API, so you need to also deploy the search API somewhere, typically on a back-end server (see Installing the Coveo Search API) .

    2. Use the Coveo .NET Front-End when you want to deploy out-of-the-box enterprise search interfaces on one or more front-end servers (see Installing Coveo .NET Front-End).

      You can also integrate Coveo .NET Front-End in SharePoint (see Installing the Coveo Web Service, Search Box, and Search Interface into SharePoint) .
