Hi all. I'm coming back to Vufind after a long hiatus:) I did a fresh install on Windows XP VMWare and I got it mostly working. I ran into a problem as is displayed in the following screen



The short of it is this:

I successfully indexed records. The folder c:\vufind\solr\biblio\index is populated with solr index files as the indexer runs and completes successfully. However the solr admin page for the biblio (and stats and authority) index shows 0 numDocs, even after I restart the Solr server.


At one point I stopped the server, deleted all the files in the index folder and restarted and it gave me a severe error. I had to repopulate the index folder with segment files before it worked again so I know that the jetty server is looking in the right place for data.


I indexed using this line in the command prompt:

Java -Xms256m -Xmx256m -Dsolr.core.name=biblio -Dsolrmarc.path=C:/vufind.import -Dsolr.path=C:/vufind/solr -Dmarc.path=c:/vufind/import/catdump.mrc -jar c:/vufind/import/dist/MarcImport.jar c:/vufind/import/import.properties


Any ideas on where to look for this one? I'm a bit stumped at the end of a long day. I hope it's something silly that I missed.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for the e-mail. I am using a windows installation and Greg from Australia has send me instructions on how to import some test data which I downloaded from the library of congress.
Everything is working fine now.
Kind Regards,

Luke - I believe you are reading outdated documentation.  Please let me know where you found this so I can be sure to update it.

Currently, VuFind only imports binary Marc21 records.  To so, you can run the import.sh script at the command line.

Dear All,
I have downloaded a few marc records from the library of congress to load into vufind.
I have managed to create an xml file using YAZ but cannot find the import php file.
According to the installation instructions:
Copy the MarcXML file into the import directory and make sure it is named catalog.xml.
Then simply run the import/import-solr.php script from the command line:
%> php import-solr.php
I am unable to find any file called import-solr.php.
Kind regards,
