Solr is completely separate software from the Apache webserver (httpd). 
It can run on the same server, or different servers.

Solr should not be accessible by untrusted parties, especially the
Internet.  Another way to think about it: When you put an application on
the Internet that uses a database, you might run the database software
on the same machine as Apache ... but I really doubt that you would
allow the Internet to get directly to the database.  Solr offers a
service that can be used by a website, just like a database server
does.  Access to it should be controlled in a similar way.
