Sitecore – SOLR is NOT starting trick #1

Avatar de Vinicius

As you probably know Sitecore supports Solr search engine, and I’ve got stuck when its services weren’t starting!

In this post I’m going to show how I have overcome and saved myself from painful rework task!

I have a Sitecore instance set to use Solr which was up and running, until I have been asked to replace the schema.xml files.

Facing the issue

My environment has Bitnami Solr installed, and here are the steps I have done to update schema.xml

1. Navigate to Solr installation folder

2. Launch manager-windows.exe

4. Updated the schema.xml files – OR anything else you have to update 🙂

5. Back to manager-windows.exe, then Manage Servers

6. Click Start All

However, the services were hanging after a while and shows as Stopped. Well, after troubleshooting, I figured it out.
