This is a tutorial for getting started with Apache Solr enterprise search with PHP and MySQL on Unix/Linux or Mac OS X. Most of the information I have found is rather incomplete or full of erros so I wanted to share how I have successfully used Solr in a number of different applications. I’m going to break this down into three separate posts/sections.
- Importing a MySQL database into Apache Solr
- Using PHP with Apache Solr
- Using the Suggester feature in the new Apache Solr 3.1
So keep an eye on Jon's blog for an up-to-date tutorial on using PHP and MySQL with Solr.
