Setup Solr with Memopol
Solr is used to perform search in the data. Currently, it is used only for
reprensatative search autocomplete.
This howto will be based on the current stable version of Debian (jessie).
Installation on Debian Stable

# apt install solr-tomcat/stable

Description: Enterprise search server based on Lucene3 - Tomcat integration
Solr is an open source enterprise search server based on the Lucene
Java search library, with XML/HTTP and JSON APIs, hit highlighting,
faceted search, caching, replication, and a web administration
interface. It runs in a Java servlet container such as Tomcat.
This package provides the Tomcat integration files for Solr.
By default, the solr server is listen on localhost:8080. Memopol is configured
to use this addess by default, in production. If you install a newer version of
Solr (6.5.1 is the latest release), you should update the
'default': {
'ENGINE': 'haystack.backends.solr_backend.SolrEngine',
'URL': '',
Configure Solr
You can use the default Solr configuration to use it, You just need to generate
the schema.xml file and copy it in `/etc/solr/`. To generate the schema.xml
$ memopol build_solr_schema > schmema.xml
## Copy the schema.xml file into /etc/solr/conf
$ sudo cp schema.xml /etc/solr/conf/
## Restart tomcat
$ sudo /etc/init.d/tomcat7 restart
Last step, you need to build the index by using::
$ memopol rebuild_index
The solr is now setup and production ready.
Populate data in Solr
Django-haystack plugin offers two ways to populate data. The first way is by
using a cron job to update the index, the other way is to use `Dango signals to
update / delete datas <>`_.
For now, Haystack is not configured to be used with Django signals. It is
necessary to add a cron job to update the index ::
$ memopol update_index
