[SOLVED] Fulltext Indexes is required during the installation


hello all,
i get an error during the installation of pimcore demo-basic example
when i run the command
–admin-username admin
–admin-password admin
–mysql-username root
–mysql-password 123456
–mysql-database project_database

it is running till 20% then i get :

  • Fulltext Indexes is required.

indexing normally on table creation.
any suggestions?


See what the check does and try it directly on your MySQL console:

CREATE TABLE __pimcore_req_check (
                  id int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
                  field varchar(190) DEFAULT NULL,
                  PRIMARY KEY (id)
                ) DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4;
ALTER TABLE __pimcore_req_check ADD FULLTEXT INDEX `fulltextFieldIndex` (`field`)

This should lead you to the problem


i added only : ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4;
Then it works
is it on install.sql?
or where should i edit ?


i edit the mysql script by adding ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4; then all works fine


HI, i have the same problem !!

it is running till 20% then i get :

Fulltext Indexes is required.

Where do i have to insert string: ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4; ??

I have insert string in file install.sql, but haven’t resolve problem.

I have modified file install.sql and insert manually strind in all CREATE TABLE, but don’t work, always same problem at 20%.

Let me know is very important for me.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards


try to open the mysql by using workbench or any other management tool and execute this command
