Subject Re: how to get abortOnConfigurationError=false working
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 13:32:36 GMT
Which version of Solr is it for?

I had a situation on Solr4, where I basically did not have a directory that
solr.xml was pointing at for one of the cores. And Solr continued working
but the Admin interface was showing big red banners about configuration

So, maybe it was a bug that was fixed for Solr 4?
