Error creating SOLR core

Hi,

I performed a backup of Alfresco via tutorial: https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/alfresco-content-services-blog/creating-and-restoring-backups-for-alfres...

Until then, alright.

I restored it and the environment is working perfectly, but SOLR starts with an error and cannot create the Alfresco and Archive cores, showing the following message:

What OS are you using in the host? Linux?

Re: Error creating SOLR core

It seems a permission issue then, with SOLR data folder.

That should be uid=33007

Re: Error creating SOLR core

Ok, thanks.
But I have already put the permission for that userid in the corresponding folder and even then error persists.
Any more ideas?

Re: Error creating SOLR core

Since it might help anybody with the same issue, it's indeed caused by permission issues when using root. The script doesn't terminate quickly when executing the command as root and instead creates a piece of the core definition before failing.

So first cleanup the broken core:

bin/solr delete -c mycore

Make sure that no folder(s) linger under /var/solr/data for your mycore core. paymydoctor

Next create the core as the solr user

su -u solr -c "/opt/solr/bin/solr create_core -c mycore"

This time it should succeed
