Install Solr 5 and Zookeeper in a production environment

Recently I had to set up three Solr servers in an AWS environment. I couldn't find anything specific to help me, so had to locate all the information separately. Hopefully the following may be of use to anyone who has to go through the same. In my situation, I have 3 servers that will sit behind a load balancer. The following describes how I set up each server.


Linux Mint 5 Elyssa

I've been using Ubuntu for the past couple of years now, and have found it a perfectly viable alternative to Windows. As I mentioned in my very first post, I'm not a Linux zealot taking a political stance. It's just a simple preference. If I was a zealot I'd be using a distribution like Gentoo, Slackware, or Linux From Scatch. One for the hard nuts, I just want something that works on my five year old laptop. I'm too tight to upgrade, so that rules out Vista. Now there's an OS that drives Linux fundamentalism.
