The Solr 3.x example uses java.util.logging, not the log4j that was
introduced in the example for 4.3.0.  Your other reply talks about
log4j, which may not be the right framework for your install.

I have no way to know what container or logging framework you're using. 
You will need to create a configuration file for whatever slf4j binding
is in use on your install and most likely add a system property to your
java commandline for startup so that your logging config gets used.  If
you're using java.util.logging, look for help with the
java.util.logging.config.file system property.

FYI -- if you reduce the logging level to WARN, a normally functioning
Solr will log almost nothing, and you'll be able to see ERROR and WARN
messages, which is extremely important for troubleshooting.  Dropping
the level to SEVERE is not necessary, and will make it impossible to
tell what happened when something goes wrong.
