Multicore Solr on Ubuntu 10.04

UPDATE: New post on getting Multicore Solr 3.4 running on Ubuntu 10.04

Been working a lot lately with the Apache Solr project.

Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. Its major features include powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic clustering, database integration, and rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling. Solr is highly scalable, providing distributed search and index replication, and it powers the search and navigation features of many of the world’s largest internet sites.


Solr for two sites running Drupal 6 Search on Tomcat 6 / CentOS 6

Note this tutorial sets up two seperate solr applications in tomcat, not multi core in one java application.

ApacheSolr for Drupal 6 improves on the out-of-the-box search experience for Drupal users. The easiest way to get Solr running on your Drupal web site is to use the hosted service provided by Acquia; it is way easier than running your own Solr. You simply point your queries to their Solr server and you’re done.
