    Hello Guys

    Many times we are getting NullPointerException in our liferay server log during upload, upadte and delete files.

    Error look like as below in our server log :

    20:22:50,828 INFO  [liferay/search_writer/SYSTEM_ENGINE-3][BaseSpellCheckIndexWriter:255] Start indexing dictionary for com/liferay/portal/search/lucene/dependencies/spellchecker/en_US.txt

    I have resovled this issue, Please follow below steps :

    Step 1: Download from '' website.

    Step 2: Unzip to an folder.

    Step 3: Navigate to apache-solr-4.0.0/example in terminal and type 'java -jar start.jar'

    Step 4: After the server has started up, shut it down.

    Step 5: Start Liferay server and deploy the Solr4 plugin.

    Step 6: After Liferay server started, shut it down.

    Step 7: Navigate in folder to /tomcat-7.0.42/webapps/solr4-web/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF

    Step 8: Open solr-spring.xml file.

    Step 9: Change 'http://localhost:8080/solr' to 'http://localhost:8983/solr'

    Step 10: The changed line should look like this:

    <constructor-arg type="java.lang.String" value="http://localhost:8983/solr/">

    Step 11: Save and close solr-spring.xml

    Step 12: Navigate in folder to /tomcat-7.0.42/webapps/solr4-web/WEB-INF/conf

    Step 13: Open the schema.xml file and do a find for 'version'

    Step 14: If it does not have it, then add

    <field indexed="true" multivalued="false" name="version" stored="true" type="string"/> 
    after a <dynamicfield indexed="" ..=""/>

    Step 15: Save and close the file

    Step 16: Copy the schema.xml file

    Step 17: Paste the file in apache-solr-4.0.0/example/solr/collection1/conf to replace the existing schema.xml file.

    Step 18: Start the Solr4 server in apache-solr-4.0.0/example (java -jar start.jar)

    Step 19: Start liferay server

    Step 20: There will be a lot of output on the Solr4 console (means it's working)

    Step 21: Navigate to Control Panel > Server Administration and reindex the spellcheck indexes
