Subject Re: Solr posting question
Date Thu, 12 Jul 2012 23:41:01 GMT
what request handler are you using?  csv?

If you point to the /admin/dump handler, what do you get?

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/dev/trunk/solr/core/src/java/org/apache/solr/handler/DumpRequestHandler.java

If there is a problem with how this gets though, we will need to fix
something in:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/dev/trunk/solr/core/src/java/org/apache/solr/servlet/SolrRequestParsers#MultipartRequestParser
