I have installed Apache solr on a VPS. I am trying to connect Drupal 7 using the apachesolr module by specifying
as the Solr Server URL. But my site is unable to contact the Solr server.
I should mention that these two servers are in different regions of the world and I am attempting to connect using http. The solr server has no iprules or other firewalls that block incoming connections.
(I am able to connect drupal to apache solr if they are on the same machine.) I am not sure if there is anything worng but it just doesn't seem to connect.
