Non ASCII characters like german umlauts do not work, how do I fix that?¶
To allow search with umlauts Tomcat needs to be configured to use UTF-8 encoded urls. Go to apache-tomcat/conf/server.xml and change the
<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1" connectionTimeout="20000" redirectPort="8443" URIEncoding="UTF-8" />
Note: This is done automatically when using the install script provided by the extension.
How can I change Solr's schema and add custom fields?¶
Please never ever touch Solr's schema file unless you know what you are doing. If you want to add custom fields you can use dynamic fields.
