Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-7826) Permission issues when creating cores with bin/solr
Date Tue, 11 Aug 2015 07:22:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-7826?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14681358#comment-14681358
] 

Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-7826:
-----------------------------------

I believe creating cores as root will cause problems every single time, so why allow it at
all? Perhaps bin/solr always should bail out early if executed as root, perhaps with an {{--runasrootonyourownrisk}}
param to override?

> Ran into an interesting situation on IRC today.
> Solr has been installed as a service using the shell script install_solr_service.sh ...
so it is running as an unprivileged user.
> User is running "bin/solr create" as root.  This causes permission problems, because
the script creates the core's instanceDir with root ownership, then when Solr is instructed
to actually create the core, it cannot create the dataDir.
> Enhancement idea:  When the install script is used, leave breadcrumbs somewhere so that
the "create core" section of the main script can find it and su to the user specified during
install.
