Install external Solr server

If you want to use Solr for indexing, you need to setup a separate Solr server, because the Solr instances embedded in SMILA cannot be shared with the other SMILA instances.

Single-Node Server

  • Download a Solr 3.x archive from This HowTo was tested with Solr 3.6.1
  • Unpack the archive to a local directory, you get a directory like /home/smila/solr/apache-solr-3.6.1.
  • Copy the files from SMILA/configuration/org.eclipse.smila.solr to the Solr machine ( is'nt needed), e.g. to /home/smila/solr/smila-cores
  • Go to /home/smila/solr/apache-solr-3.6.1/example and run:
java -Dsolr.solr.home=/home/smila/solr/smila-cores -jar start.jar

Distributed Server

For larger data volumes you will need to setup Solr in a distributed way, too.
