Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3619) Rename 'example' dir to 'server' and pull examples into an 'examples' directory
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2014 23:52:14 GMT


Alexandre Rafalovitch commented on SOLR-3619:

Why can't we have 
/homes (whatever name, if not examples)

Then, the /server is immutable, can be copied around and so on. And the users do not have
to grep the file system to look for where the files changed.

The problem is not when the user creates something (though you bet they will freak out over
the error message). The problem is when they come back the next day and something goes wrong.
And they have to figure out what happened behind the scenes. Or when they want to delete the
examples they created all over the place and want to start a fresh setup of their own. 

At the moment, if they create schemaless and techproducts, they go together in a very deep
directory under server. If they create cloud example, we get two directory copies (with logs,
not just those examples I complained about) in a random (current directory) location. 

Another way to look at it is _what do I need to delete to get back to the original setup_.
At the moment, it's something in /bin (pid files), something - not everything - in some deep
directories (/server/solr/X,Y,Z), something else in another deep directory (/server/logs)
and something in whatever location I was in when I run cloud example. Even I just delete the
whole setup and just untar the build archive.
