When i was trying to install CKAN from source i encountered error on apachesolr, the only way i can test it out is to browse apachesolr admin site locally (127.0.0.1), since im on ec2 and only accessing via ssh i cant browse it using firefox, chome. Good thing is that David from CKAN community introduced me to w3m a text based browser, it doesnt render visually but it does render the markups.
Heres step on setting it up:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install w3m
w3m [options] [URL or filename]
There you have it.
