Subject Re: solr to work for my web application
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2008 05:10:43 GMT

Hey Thorsten, I need to know one more thing...currently solr is getting up
and running on port 8080. What my understanding is whichever port my tomcat
is running, solr is running on the same. I mean if tomcat is down, solr is
down and vice versa. 

My requirement is I need solr to run on port 80 and also this should be up
and running through tomcat configuration for solr. I am searching for this
requirement, please let me know if you have any clues.

Thanks in advance...
