Creating a diff file to upgrade Magento
View Upgrading Magento via diff and patch.md

Before you begin

Read Aaron Hawks' blog post for the original idea for this gist.

While this process should theoretically work to upgrade the core/default files that come with Magento from any old version to the most recent version (as long as they're in the same distribution, i.e., Community to Community or Enterprise to Enterprise), you should always refer to Magento's release notes and upgrade paths for the version you're upgrading to for full details and work flow. This is the process I used to go from Magento EE 1.12.0.2 to Magento EE 1.13.0.1 directly ( skipping over 1.13.0.0 due to the instructions outlined in this Magento article and release notes ).

Basic configuration steps for setting up Solr 3.x on CentOS/RHEL 6.4 -- specifically for use with Magento Enterprise
View 01-SolrSetup.md

Installing Solr on CentOS/RHEL 6

From the Apache Software Foundation, "Solr is an open source enterprise search server based on the Lucene Java search library, with XML/HTTP and JSON, Ruby, and Python APIs, hit highlighting, faceted search, caching, replication, and a web administration interface." Magento has had built-in support for Solr since Enterprise verion 1.8.

The following instructions show how to complete a basic installation and configuration of Apache Solr for use with Magento Enterprise on CentOS/RHEL 6. These instructions the Java JDK with Tomcat rather than jetty.

Note: Solr should be on a dedicated server if possible, especially for large installations, as it can be resource intensive
