Installation of Solr on FreeBSD in combination with jetty. I you have tomcat running I suggest you move to jetty. I assume you have already a running java environment (openjdk) running.
cd /usr/ports/www/jetty/ make install make clean echo jetty_enable="YES" >> /etc/rc.conf cp /usr/local/jetty/etc/jetty.xml /usr/local/etc/jetty.xml echo "# Do not truncate command line arguments in ps(1) listing" >> /etc/sysctl.conf echo kern.ps_arg_cache_limit=10000 >> /etc/sysctl.conf /etc/rc.d/sysctl restart
and solr with:
cd /usr/ports/textproc/apache-solr make install make clean
Configure solr, I use only one database, but you can use as many as you want.
mkdir /usr/local/solr cd !$ cp /usr/local/share/examples/apache-solr/solr/solr.xml . chmod 664 solr.xml chown -R www:www .
Edit solr.xml to have the following content:

More information about options available in this configuration file, and Solr Core administration can be found online: http://wiki.apache.org/solr/CoreAdmin``` --> <!-- All (relative) paths are relative to the installation path persistent: Save changes made via the API to this file sharedLib: path to a lib directory that will be shared across all cores``` --> <solr persistent="false"> <!-- adminPath: RequestHandler path to manage cores. If 'null' (or absent), cores will not be manageable via request handler --> <cores adminPath="/admin/cores" sharedLib="lib"> <core name="drupal" instanceDir="drupal" /> </cores>``` </solr>
Next step is to create the folders and copy config files for all cores you have added:
mkdir -p drupal/conf cd !$ cp -r /usr/local/share/examples/apache-solr/solr/conf/* ./ cd - chown -R www:www *
Now we configure jetty to use Solr:
cd /usr/local/jetty/webapps/ ln -s /usr/local/share/java/classes/apache-solr-3.6.0.war solr.war cd /usr/local/jetty ln -s /usr/local/solr service jetty restart
You should now get a Solr page by going to http://localhost:8080/solr/drupal/admin/.
