Subject Re: missing a directory, can not process pdf files

There's nothing in that tutorial that mentions an update "directory".  /update is a URL endpoint
that requires Solr be up and running.

Please post the entire set of steps that you're trying and the exact (copy/pasted) error messages
you're receiving.

And once you index a PDF file, you don't retrieve the file back from Solr, you retrieve search
results.  The original file is where it was indexed from, not inside Solr.  What you'll get
back is the file name (if you stored it, that is).
