About pricing

This plugin relies on the Algolia service which requires you to create an account here. Algolia offers its Search as a Service provider on a incremental payment program, including a free Community Plan which includes 10,000 records & 100,000 operations per month. Beyond that, plans start at $35/month.

Note that there isn’t a direct correlation between the number of posts in WordPress and the number of records in Algolia. Also note that we only offer support to paying plans. On average, you can expect to have about 10 times more records than you have posts, though this is not a golden rule and you could end up with more records.

Server requirements

Algolia Search plugin for WordPress has a few system requirements to be able to work properly.

You will need to make sure your server meets the following requirements:

  • WordPress 4.4+
  • PHP 5.6 or greater
  • MySQL 5.6 or greater
  • cURL PHP extension
  • mbstring PHP extension
  • OpenSSL greater than 1.0.1
It is possible that the plugin might work on lower versions of the listed requirements. Still we recommend you use up to date versions for PHP and WordPress as we might introduce breaking changes in the future.
