Thanks Alex.  I'll thumb through them for sure....  Most were good when I read them, but seemed
like a few steps they skipped out on adding the details needed to make it completely painless

I don't know which of these you read, so it is a bit of a grab bag.
And I haven't reviewed some of them in depth. But hopefully, there is a nugget of gold somewhere
in there for you: (oldish)
(just to drool, but it may also be useful)

Hope it helps,

then it will actually load, but if I let it auto start, I get an HTTP 500 error on the Admin
UI for SOLR.

setup a SOLRCloud so that we can toy with it in a Dev/QA Environment and see what it's capable
of.  We're currently running 4 separate master/slave SOLR server pairs in production to spread
out the load a bit, but I'd rather see us migrate towards a cluster/cloud scenario to gain
some computing power here!
