    I am struggling to install solr 4.7.2 with tomcat 8.

    I followed your instructions to install Tomcat 8.0.5 but Solr, which was manually installed, doesn’t appear in /etc, and my instructions require it –

    Now, let’s a get Solr into Tomcat Catalina config. Create a new solr.xml file:

    $ sudo nano /etc/tomcat7/Catalina/localhost/solr.xml

    Any advice on how to establish /etc/tomcat8/Catalina/localhost/solr.xml on my ubuntu server?

    I’ve solved it now, and would love to delete my question.

    I think there is a typo toward the end. Perhaps:

    # sudo update-rc.d tomcat747 defaults

    should be

    # sudo update-rc.d tomcat8 defaults

    Otherwise very helpful, thanks!
