Subject Re: Add Solr files to VCS (GIT)
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2020 14:18:40 GMT
There’s nothing built in to Solr that will automatically pull files from a
VCS repo, so it’s a manual process. Which is one of the “gotchas” about
managed config files, but that’s another rant.

Are you running SolrCloud or stand-alone? If SolrCloud, it doesn’t make
sense to talk about /var/solr/data/core/conf, you’d need to have one
copy in VCS and push/pull it to/from ZooKeeper as needed with 
“bin/solr zk upconfig|downconfig”.

As for, I’d keep a master copy in VCS and, if your setup is
complicated use something like Puppet or Chef or whatever to
automate pushing changes to all my servers. Otherwise do it 
manually if you only have a few servers.
