One of our  LAMP test servers recently crashed and luckily we were able to salvage the hard disk drive from that server.  Restoring the PHP web files from that box was easy, as you can imagine.  We struggled to restore the databases though because we didn’t have export files like we were used to.  Keep in mind that your database server version should be the same.  If you’re on Ubuntu 12.04 and have kept up to date with both systems, the version numbers should match up.

ColdFusion 10 ships with Solr version 3.4 (Solr Specification Version: 3.4.0.2012.02.02.15.09.05 ).  It looks like they got the source code from the git repository on February 2nd, 2012.  In my application that I was writing, I was indexing a huge amount of data (full text of PDF files).  The solr instance bundled within ColdFusion couldn’t handle the amount of data that I…
