Hello inmoFAn,

Thanks for your question about using something like Solr search or other options for search with your VPS.  Apache Solr should be okay to use with your VPS.  You need to make sure that you have root access and that all the install requirements are met with your current hosting subscription.  If you have any doubts, submit a ticket to our live support team or speak with managed support to see if you all the needed requirements.

There are a number of search engines that you can self-host yourself.  Instead of trying to list ALL of them, I'll refer to an outside article that lists (in their opinion) the best of them:  Best Self-Hosted Search Engines.

Also, we have articles on SEARX and Elastic Search in our support center. The last one that I'll mention is Redisearch.  We do have a couple articles on it for its installation and use with WordPress.  

I hope that helps!  If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest Regards,

Arnel C.
