I've tried various tutorials and I get a 404 error when I finally navigate to host:port/solr on my CentOS machine.
Can anyone tell me why I would get a 404?
Once I find a solution I'll make this the official tutorial on how to install Apache Solr on a CentOS 6 / Tomcat6 configuration. In the meantime, there is very little documentation out there...
Tomcat6 Configuration (Source)
yum install tomcat6 tomcat6-webapps tomcat6-admin-webapps vi /usr/share/tomcat6/conf/tomcat6.conf JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk-126.96.36.199/"
Additionally, I've added an admin and manager role user in /etc/tomcat6/tomcat-users.xml
/usr/share/tomcat6/conf/Catalina/localhost/solr.xml <Context docBase="/data/solr/solr.war" debug="0" privileged="true" allowLinking="true" crossContext="true"> <Environment name="solr/home" type="java.lang.String" value="/data/solr" override="true" /> </Context>
