I have installed and Apache-solr server (version 3.6 running with tomcat) in my VPS to index content and run queries on a Drupal 7 website.
Whenever tomcat restarts, Solr needs to be restarted. I need to implement a script and anything else that might be needed to re-start solr automatically and ensure it stays running. I also need to implement some basic http authentication to ensure I can protect my indexes.
