This section describes how to install Solr. You can install Solr in any system where a suitable Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is available, as detailed below. Currently this includes Linux, OS X, and Microsoft Windows. The instructions in this section should work for any platform, with a few exceptions for Windows as noted.

Got Java?

You will need the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.8 or higher. At a command line, check your Java version like this:

The exact output will vary, but you need to make sure you meet the minimum version requirement. We also recommend choosing a version that is not end-of-life from its vendor. If you don't have the required version, or if the java command is not found, download and install the latest version from Oracle at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html.

Installing Solr

Solr is available from the Solr website at http://lucene.apache.org/solr/.

For Linux/Unix/OSX systems, download the .tgz file. For Microsoft Windows systems, download the .zip file. When getting started, all you need to do is extract the Solr distribution archive to a directory of your choosing. When you're ready to setup Solr for a production environment, please refer to the instructions provided on the Taking Solr to Production page. To keep things simple for now, extract the Solr distribution archive to your local home directory, for instance on Linux, do:

Once extracted, you are now ready to run Solr using the instructions provided in the Running Solr section.
