Most written text has a lot of functional words, like "a", "the", or "is" which are important to the person reading the content as they help it flow in a cohesive manner, but aren't necessary as important to someone searching the content of your site. In this tutorial we'll look at ways to ignore those words in our search index.
This week we wrap up our exploration of integrating Drupal with Apache Solr. We'll look at using facets for narrowing returned search results, and some additional Solr server configuration options for further refining our index.
This week we continue learning how to integrate Drupal with Apache Solr by looking at how to install Apache Solr on both development and production servers, and how to connect Solr to Drupal with the Search API module.
