I'm trying to setup custom Lucene indexing but getting An index with the name "sitecore_web_index" have already been added.. Here's my config files. Have I missed something out?

  • I would suggest to verify these two files Sitecore.ContentSearch.Lucene.Index.Web and Sitecore.ContentSearch.Solr.Index.Web, please check if both are enabled - without .EXAMPLE at the end of the file. – Vinicius Deschamps Feb 20 '17 at 12:32

    Please Verfiy that you have two indexes from /sitecore/admin/showconfig.aspx – Balaji Kuppuswamy Feb 20 '17 at 12:45

    You have id="sitecore_web_index" change where you have sitecore_web_index written to the name of your index – Anicho Feb 20 '17 at 13:23
  • Try to see what all files the web index specified. Run this powershell and check the files Get-ChildItem -recurse | Select-String -pattern "sitecore_web_index" | group path | select name – Sumith P D Feb 20 '17 at 14:24

If you open the showconfig page (hostname/sitecore/admin/showconfig.aspx) it will tell you all the indexes that Sitecore is loading specially the one that is causing you problem. It will show you something like this:

<index id="sitecore_web_index" type="Sitecore.ContentSearch.SolrProvider.SolrSearchIndex, Sitecore.ContentSearch.SolrProvider" patch:source="Sitecore.ContentSearch.Solr.Index.Web.config">

IF you look at it you will notice that the sitecore_web_index in this example is being defined on the file Sitecore.ContentSearch.Solr.Index.Web.config and is being patched from it. Hopefully this will help you

If the /sitecore/admin/showconfig.aspx also does not work you can search for "sitecore_web_index" in the App_Config folder of your website and then you will find the wrong config.

I've solved the problem by giving the index id different name.

  • Can you add a little more detail? Why did this solve the issue? Did you have an index appearing with the same name when you looked in the ShowConfig before you made the change? Where was the other index coming from? Etc. – Zachary Kniebel Feb 27 '17 at 18:32
