Running Solr

To test whether your installation was completed successfully, you need to run Solr. Type these commands in the terminal to run it:

$ cd /usr/local/Cellar/solr/4.4.0/libexec/example/
$ java -jar start.jar

After you run the preceding commands, you will see lots of dumping messages/logs on the terminal. Don't worry! It's normal. Just try to fix any error if it is there. Once the messages are stopped and there is no error message, simply go to any web browser and type http://localhost:8983/solr/#/.
