Solr works fine with Tomcat 5.5

Solr is a little different from other web applications in that it uses a
specified directory as "solr home" which contains configuration (schema,
solrconfig etc). The solrconfig also tells solr where to store the index.

The solr home can be specified in many ways (environment variable, JNDI or
even in web.xml). I guess you should specify the absolute path to the solr
home in one of these ways (specifying it in web.xml and re-packaging the war
may be easier for you?). You'd need to upload the contents of the solr home
at the specified location on your server (look at the example directory
which comes with the solr download). Specify the absolute path to data
directory in solrconfig.xml (make sure it is writable).
