Subject Re: How to disable the admin interface
Date Sun, 04 Oct 2015 21:07:13 GMT
Hi Shawn and Andrew,

I am on page with you guys about the ssh authentication and communicating
with the API's that SOLR has to provide. I simply don't want the GUI as it
is nobody will be able to access it once I set the policy on my server
except for servers in the same network. Also, now that we are on that
issue, does SOLR URL's have checks to guard against penetration attacks as
the "prod setup" guide is so openly available?
