In order for Drupal to work with Apache Solr, we need to add the Search API module. This module provides a generic interface for search backends, including Solr. Furthermore, it adds several features to search without the need for custom code.
In this tutorial, we'll:
- Describe why Search API is necessary to use Solr with Drupal
- Identify a Search API server
By the end of this tutorial you should be able to install the Search API and Search API Solr modules, and create the Search API server configuration required to connect Drupal and Solr.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously.

Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
