Okay, so you probably shouldn’t be doing this – but should you install Solr using the Bitnami stack – like I usually would – it will ask you to set up a usename and password to connect with.
This is a good thing (much better than MongoDB’s “Insecure by default” configuration) – but what if you don’t want it (e.g. for your shared dev Solr instance)?
- Edit \solr-xxxx\apache-solr\conf\solr.conf
- Set AuthType to “None”
- Remove “Require User ” line
- Restart service.
That should do it.
