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.
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.
