haystack python manage.py rebuild_index error

Hello,

I've been struggling to enable haystack w/ solr backend on a test instance but I'm hitting the error below. So it seems I should be building my own user_text.txt template and head the django template language. If anyone had ran into this problem or have a template they'd like share I'd appreciate it!

Thank you

it now requires haystack==2.0 and the settings changed to a dictionary based configuration, please check that first

Hey Fitoria, thanks for the reply. I am doing exactly that: <pre> #HAYSTACK_SETTINGS ENABLE_HAYSTACK_SEARCH = True

#Uncomment for multilingual setup: #HAYSTACK_ROUTERS = ['askbot.search.haystack.routers.LanguageRouter',]

#Uncomment if you use haystack #More info in http://django-haystack.readthedocs.org/en/latest/settings.html HAYSTACK_CONNECTIONS = { 'default': { 'ENGINE': 'haystack.backends.simple_backend.SimpleEngine', 'URL': 'http: //10.0.1.201:8080/solr' } } </pre>

<pre> $ pip freeze |grep haystack django-haystack==2.0.0 </pre>

oh yeah, html format doesn't work on comments.

eugenenarciso's avatar eugenenarciso (2013-06-04 16:26:25 -0600) edit

python manage.py build_solr_schema > /tmp/schema.xml will just work with solr setup so instead of using the SimpleEngine change the configuration values to use SolrEngine check -> http://django-haystack.readthedocs.org/en/latest/settings.html#haystack-connections

Eugene, I will hopefully very soon. We've almost completed this work.

Hi, what's the status of this? I don't see any haystack/solr related branch name in github.

There is a branch called "solr" we will merge it into the master by mid-june.

Evgeny's avatar Evgeny (2013-06-03 05:21:30 -0600) edit
