Please help with the Solr installation/configuration

Hello kind people of the Forums,

I've installed Solr, because I wanted to use it as a system for making facets in my searches. But I've had so much trouble with it. At first I couldn't find the port anywhere and it kept saying Solr connection is invalid. Then I finally found the port and now it says Solr connection is valid. The problem is when I try searching for something/anything it returns a large error message:

#0 /home/library_aviasg_com/public_html/plugins/SolrSearch/lib/solr-php-client/Response.php(164): Apache_Solr_Response->_parseData()
#1 /home/library_aviasg_com/public_html/plugins/SolrSearch/controllers/ResultsController.php(53): Apache_Solr_Response->__get('response')

#7 /home/library_aviasg_com/public_html/application/libraries/Omeka/Application.php(79): Zend_Application->run()
#8 /home/library_aviasg_com/public_html/index.php(23): Omeka_Application->run()
#9 {main}

Is there maybe something I have to configure inside Omeka for it to work? Or do I have to do something in Solr? Because it's installed on a dedicated server properly and working just fine, until it comes to Omeka.
Any and all help/suggestions will be much appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi Maks. Look at the solr management page and make sure the core is working properly. For Tomcat it should be http://ip_address:8080/solr for Jetty it's http://ip_address:8983/solr. Click "Core Admin" on the left of the management page, then click on your core. If there are any errors, it will tell you. Adam

Hello Adam,

Thank you for your reply. Everything seems to be working properly in the core, here's some screenshots.

This is still very relevant, please someone help.
