Problem with rake solr:start


#1

Hi,

I am trying to use solr in a rails application.This is my first
experience with both Ruby on rails and solr.I I am following the
documents available on net, but ,noe is completely satifactory.So I
dont have a goood understanding of everything.I have installed the
solr-ruby gem and plugin acts_as_solr.
But downloaded it manually and the put it in /vendor/plugin/
I am unable to start the server. Command is

$ rake solr:start

The error message is :

rake aborted!
No such file or directory -

/home/manisha/ROR/library/vendor/plugins/
acts_as_solr/config/…/solr/tmp/development_pid

Can anyone help me understand whats happening and how can i solve
this?
Thanks in advance
