The last few weeks, our development and documentation teams have made it really easy to connect Sitecore and Solr. I want to share a one-minute video that demonstrates how easy we’ve made the process. It’s not that connecting the two technologies ever was extraordinarily complicated, it’s just that the steps were numerous, sometimes requiring a good understanding of Sitecore and/or Solr, and errors in the process (who hasn’t made a typo?) were hard to diagnose. For the more unlucky among us, this process had caused hair loss and heartburn. The new process makes everything smooth, fast, and easy. Like a fun sled ride. 🙂
Here’s the video. It’s only one minute long, so don’t hesitate to watch it.
For the more ambitious among you, you can read a lot more details at:
You can see how much the plugin simplified the process by reading the deprecated pre-plugin process at https://www.searchstax.com/docs/Sitecore%209.1%20original%20install.pdf
