[Koha] Zebra (Koha 3.20.05) - Run it as a cron job or use default daemon?

Hi Craig,

using the rebuild_zebra.pl cronjob is currently the default for
reindexing. If you are using packages there is no need to deactivate
anything, it is all already set up to work correctly.

Also koha-stop-zebra would stop your Zebra server - so the search would
stop working. You want to have that running :)

Others might be able to explain that better, but hope this helps.
