This document describes how to rebuild Solr categories using Solr Categories Preferences page allowing for all categories to be rebuilt on the site.
Apache Solr is a fast open-source Java search server. Solr enables the creation of search engines which searches websites, databases and files. Rebuilding Solr means re-indexing.
The Solr Categories page is used when the category changes are made on the Catalog | Categories page and don’t appear on the site. Clicking the rebuild button allows the site to take the changes and re-index it.
