I recently bought a Synology 212J to store all my pictures on, and of course also to play with. I always had some crappy tiny non-modifyable NAS/Media Center solution that I really hated. coughPlextorcough
We all love test and staging environments but it becomes a problem when you have Solr integrated in your project and you have a test solr, a staging solr and a production solr core. To re-index a site is not a big problem, but what if you want to go live and switch indexes immediately?
Drupal.org has wrestled with this problem. So I wanted to show you how they do it.
Recently I've been involved in drupal.org by upgrading the site to the latest version of Apache Solr Search Integration (from 6.x-1.x to 6.x-3.x, and in the near future to 7.x-1.x). This upgrade path is necessary as we still want to have a unified search capability across Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 sites, for example groups.drupal.org and drupal.org.
