I just commited changes that moves YaCy latest git version into a situation where it can start up again. There were many more dependency and configuration problems for solr 8 but it works now with that.
Sad to say that there is currently no automatic migration of indexes… Here is what you must do:
- use YaCy in version (up to) 1.924 (not latest git), i.e. https://download.yacy.net/yacy_v1.924_20201214_10042.tar.gz
- Open Index Export/Import
- click on the “Export” button (leave all other settings as it is by default, export as json)
- let it run and it will create a (large) single dump file in
If you loaded a newer version already, don’t worry, the original 6.6er index files are not touched and not removed. Just move the DATA folder to an older YaCy version and the old index is still there.
I will make sure that this will can be imported with the solr 8.8.1 version.
Sorry for inconveniences, but I researched for solr-embeded tools but could not find one that migrates from 6.6 to 8.8.
