Example "Solr Home" Directory ============================= This directory is provided as an example of what a "Solr Home" directory should look like. It's not strictly necessary that you copy all of the files in this directory when setting up a new instance of Solr, but it is recommended. Basic Directory Structure ------------------------- The Solr Home directory typically contains the following subdirectories... conf/ This directory is mandatory and must contain your solrconfig.xml and schema.xml. Any other optional configuration files would also be kept here. data/ This directory is the default location where Solr will keep your index, and is used by the replication scripts for dealing with snapshots. You can override this location in the solrconfig.xml and scripts.conf files. Solr will create this directory if it does not already exist. lib/ This directory is optional. If it exists, Solr will load any Jars found in this directory and use them to resolve any "plugins" specified in your solrconfig.xml or schema.xml (ie: Analyzers, Request Handlers, etc...) bin/ This directory is optional. It is the default location used for keeping the replication scripts.
