Setup WPSOLR and ObjectRocket
From WPSOLR 21.4.
This video suppose you already have an account at ObjectRocket.
You will see how to create an ObjectRocket index with a few clicks.
What is ObjectRocket?
ObjectRocket is a service to host Elasticsearch indexes, among others. Rather than installing Elasticsearch on your own servers, you get a subscription and let the service manage your indexes on your behalf. No need of manpower, or servers, anymore.
Here is the video tutorial:
1 – Signup for a free trial at ObjectRocket
2 – Navigate to your ObjectRocket dashboard
3 – Create your first ObjectRocket cluster
3.1 – Activate trial
3.2 – Set a name for your cluster
3.3 Select a type (of nodes/VMs)
3.4 Select a region (where your nodes/VMs are)
3.5 Select the Elasticsearch version
3.6 Create the cluster
Wait a few moments, until your cluster is ready to accept your first index.
3.7 Copy the cluster public url (to paste in WPSOLR index admin)
3.8 Generate an ACL/IP
Create an ACL to let your WordPress site access the cluster:
3.9 Generate a cluster user/password (to paste in WPSOLR index admin)
Create a user/password with role “admin”:
