I tried to install Magento 2.2 EE on my local with MySQL 5.7.21 and PHP 7. On the command "bin/magento setup:install" it starts to populate the database until a point when it crashes with the following error:

   Progress: 434 / 801]
   Module 'Magento_CatalogSearch':
   Installing data...

       There is no such engine:

That's all I got. I tried to modify the table 'core_config_data' where path is 'catalog/search/engine' to 'mysql', realised that it wasn't even there, had to add it manually, but it didn't work at all, at the "bin/magento setup:upgrade" it also crashes at Magento_CatalogSearch with the same error "There is no such engine:".

Any ideas how can I get rid of this error?

  • which version of magento are you using ( i.e CE or EE ) ? – Naveed Asim Mar 9 '18 at 10:18
  • Is this Magento Commerce ? – vitoriodachef Mar 9 '18 at 17:21
  • @Naveed it is Magento 2 EE – E.Mayer Mar 12 '18 at 11:57
  • @vitoriodachef it is Magento 2 EE – E.Mayer Mar 12 '18 at 11:57
  • check db engine in magento.yaml / services.yaml if it is mysql or sloar/elastic search. – Naveed Asim Mar 12 '18 at 11:59

Try with the below 3 steps:

  1. Ignore the Magento_CatalogSearch installation during the first time

Go to app/etc/config.php and disable this module, Search for Magento_CatalogSearch and change 1 to 0.

  1. Run this SQL query after successful installation or can be done in background

UPDATE core_config_data set value = 'mysql' where path='catalog/search/engine';

  1. After installation is successful, Run the below CLI command to upgrade, flush the cache and reindex

php -f bin/magento setup:upgrade php -f bin/magento cache:flush php -f bin/magento indexer:reindex

  • @E.Mayer: Did you try this solution? Did you get chance to check the MySql log? – Taran Mar 13 '18 at 20:44

You set up a catalog search engine that does not exist at 'catalog/search/engine' in your config. See: app/code/Magento/CatalogSearch/Model/ResourceModel/EngineProvider.php

So you probably configured a search engine you did not install.

  • mysql was the engine, it's installed. – E.Mayer Mar 8 '18 at 9:49
  • I have never installed a search engine. But did you check if the setup string are correct? Did you set that manually or via dropdown in the backend? – steros Mar 12 '18 at 12:15

Searching for the log message:

 * Get engine singleton
 * @return EngineInterface
public function get()
    if (!$this->engine) {
        $currentEngine = $this->scopeConfig->getValue(self::CONFIG_ENGINE_PATH, ScopeInterface::SCOPE_STORE);
        if (!isset($this->enginePool[$currentEngine])) {
            throw new \LogicException(
                'There is no such engine: ' . $currentEngine
        $engineClassName = $this->enginePool[$currentEngine];

Further up in the class there is a config constant: const CONFIG_ENGINE_PATH = 'catalog/search/engine'; Which I would look into what it is set to, most likely the search engine configured like elasticsearch is set but not available.

Also was this an upgrade from 1.x?
