Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-7826) Permission issues when creating cores with bin/solr
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2016 20:51:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-7826?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15543396#comment-15543396

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

bq. we shouldn't have to wait for users to get screwed by bugs before we discuss if there
is a better solution.
Before this patch we had no safeguards whatsoever, but now we protect against inadvertently
messing up by running as root. In my eyes that is improvement over perfection. It will always
be possible for you or others to open new issues and work on improving usability even more.

> 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.
