Does anyone know how one would typically set up a shared Solr instance on a linux server?
It's not too complicated. You can either do it in a container if you're using something like Docker, or just install the Solr service
Make sure you get the right Solr version if you're doing this for search. You'll need to check which versions are supported
Yeah had to use Solr 4 with SS.
Just thinking if there are any restrictions accessing the Solr instance on one website, by other websites on the server
will have to test
I'm not sure what you can do with Solr 4... the later versions support authentication out of the box I think
I briefly fiddled with a Solarium interface at the tail end of last year, but never got very far with it. Usual story: commercial pressure got in the way and quicker solutions were needed!
Yeah if I cant get this to work I'll set up a new solr instasnce on a different port i guess
might be some firewalling between the different users on the machine. Maybe support can help you...
