This is part 1 in a series of a few that helps people explore the Apache Solr module.

This tutorial explains visually how to install the module and how to get started with the solr server. My plan is to create a bunch of these tutorials to help people out. I hope I can cover all the UI + all API functions at least once in practice.

This is partly a preparation for a workshop I am preparing for Drupalcamp Porto.

Last Monday (26th of march) I went to Barcelona to do my thesis defense in order to complete my Master. This defense existed out of a panel of three professors from the UPC university.

I worked hard for the Drupal community to improve the Apache Solr Module for Drupal 7 and hopefully we (Acquia and I) succeeded in our efforts to do so. Naturally not everything could be done in the period of 5 months but here's a small road map of issues that needed to be resolved.

Embedded is the presentation I gave for the local user group in Belgium.

A quick and simple guide to get Drupal 7 and Apache Solr version 3.5 or higher running on your local development machine! For the ones that have been resistant in trying out Apache Solr, this is your chance. If you are running an OSX or Unix machine you could be running Apache Solr in under 5 minutes!

Follow these simple steps and you will become a Solr Master very soon!
