The SearchStax® Frequently Asked Questions page includes the following approved question and answer about our Apache Solr Cloud services.

Access to the path is denied.

While upgrading the Sitecore Module to version 1.4.1, a client reported this error:

ERROR Installation failed: System.Exception: Background process failed: Access to the path is denied. ---> System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path is denied.

This issue can sometimes occur when the Sitecore AppPool doesn’t have proper permissions. Make sure that the AppPool has write/admin access to the Sitecore root directory.

We love to answer questions!

Please contact the SearchStax Support Desk immediately if you have any question about Solr Cloud deployments.
