java and solr woes in debian Show more
Turns out an old version of Solr (5.5.5) only works with an old version of java (java 1.8 aka java 8) giving me a weird error saying it can't open solr.log
Fortunately debian supports *all java*First install java 8
apt install openjdk-8-jre openjdk-8-jre-headless
Then set alternatives to openjdk-8-jre with update-alternatives
update-alternatives --config java
Then solr will start. Happy searching.
