How do I configure the Hosted Solr cores via Site Configuration?
When using Site Configuration and the appropriate EXT:solr version 10+, the core configuration must be done in Site Configuration. However, the data required for Hosted Solr cannot be stored via Site Management, but requires a manual adjustment of the yaml file. As mentioned in the extension documentation, language-specific information can be stored there, e.g. via solr_host_read or solr_core_read.
In excerpts the configuration in the yaml file could look like this:
languages: - title: German solr_host_read: node-x.hosted-solr.com solr_core_read: core_de solr_path_read: ##path##/solr/ solr_username_read: ##user_host_x## solr_password_read: ##password_host_x## - title: English solr_host_read: node-y.hosted-solr.com solr_core_read: core_en solr_path_read: ##path##/solr/ solr_username_read: ##user_host_y## solr_password_read: ##password_host_y## rootPageId: 1 solr_enabled_read: true solr_scheme_read: https solr_port_read: 443 solr_use_write_connection: false
The use of environment variables is also possible, see Using Environment Variables in Site Configuration in the EXT:solr documentation.
Important: The yaml file should be protected from external access.
