For a project like this, you can make just about any solution work.

Maintaining apps that depend on technologies you don't use for anything
else is a pain, so I'd be inclined to avoid the overhead of learning
something new for this project unless is a part of your long term

For example, solr or postgres are both viable here, but those two
applications are good for very different types of purposes. So if you use
one of those, pick the one that will be the most useful down the road.
