Is it possible to run solr in a read-only directory? I'm running it just fine on a ubuntu server which is accessible only through SSH tunneling. At the platform level, this is fine: only authorized users can access it (via a browser on their machine accessing a forwarded port).
The problem is that it's an all-or-nothing situation so everyone who's authorized access to the platform has, in effect, administrator privileges on solr. I understand that authentication is coming, but that it isn't here yet. (Or, to add complexity, I had to downgrade from 7.2.1 to 6.4.2 to overcome a new bug concerning indexing of eml files, and 6.4.2 definitely doesn't have authentication.) Anyway, what I was wondering is if it might be possible to run solr not as me (the administrator), but as a user with lesser privileges so that no one who came through the SSH tunnel could (inadvertently or otherwise) screw up the indexes.
