Chef cookbook for setting up Apache Solr 3.6.x/4.x from mirrors.

Build Status Dependency Status


Built to run on Linux distributions. Tested on Ubuntu 12.04.
Depends on the hipsnip-jetty cookbook.


For example if you want to install Solr 4.2, you could create a cookbook with a recipe containing this code:

node.set['solr']['version'] = '4.2.1'
node.set['solr']['checksum'] = '648a4b2509f6bcac83554ca5958cf607474e81f34e6ed3a0bc932ea7fac40b99'

node.set['jetty']['port'] = 8983
node.set['jetty']['version'] = '9.0.2.v20130417'
node.set['jetty']['link'] = ''
node.set['jetty']['checksum'] = '6ab0c0ba4ff98bfc7399a82a96a047fcd2161ae46622e36a3552ecf10b9cddb9'

node.set['java']['jdk_version'] = 7
