Installing Solr Packages
This topic describes how to complete a new installation of Solr packages. To upgrade an existing installation, see Upgrading Cloudera Search.
$ sudo yum install solr-server
$ sudo apt-get install solr-server
$ sudo zypper install solr-server
$ rpm -ql solr-server solr
$ dpkg -L solr-server solr
Cloudera Search packages are configured according to the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard.
Next, enable the server daemons you want to use with Hadoop. You can also enable Java-based client access by adding the JAR files in /usr/lib/solr/ and /usr/lib/solr/lib/ to your Java class path.
