Apache Solr for TYPO3

How can I use an Apache Solr index that is hosted by Hosted Solr in my TYPO3 installation?

After creating the Solr index using the web interface, please click on the button Tipps. There, we provide a TypoScript snippet that you need to paste into your website's TypoScript template configuration.

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:

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.
