Configuring SOLR

There is native support for SOLR on MageStack. But for it to function, we must first generate a SOLR core from your store configuration files.

You can have as many SOLR instances/cores as you require, MageStack will provision a core per Magento store. This way you can have a separate core for LIVE and a separate core for STAGING/DEVELOPMENT etc.

You do not need to do anything, Magento Enterprise comes with its own set of SOLR configuration files.
If you are using a 3rd party extension to provide SOLR functionality, you to ensure your SOLR config files exist in ./lib/Apache/Solr/Conf

Once your configuration files are in place, you need to submit a support ticket so that we can re-build the SOLR configuration and start a new core for this domain.

Default configuration settings

The configuration settings for Magento are as follows

Host:     db1.i
Port:     8080
Path:     solr/example.com
Username: admin
Password: 

Configuration file locations

When building a SOLR core, MageStack will scan the store's document root to find the SOLR configuration files (eg. schema.xml). They are scanned in the following order (first match is used),

./lib/Apache/Solr/$SOLR_CORE_NAME
./lib/Apache/Solr
./app/code/community/JeroenVermeulen/Solarium

Custom core names

The default SOLR core name is the vhost name, however, it is sometimes desirable to customise the SOLR core name - or even have multiple SOLR cores for a single Magento installation.

Contact our support team to rename the SOLR core, or create additional SOLR cores for a single domain.
