Brett, to be clear what you mean by deleting the indexes, would that mean deleting both the
.index and .indexer directories under each of our repositories?  Will Archiva be available
for use while those are being recreated?  We fixed an issue a few months ago by deleting the
database and I don't recall that affecting availability, not sure if the index is different.

It looks like that documentation is out of date. There is only the one database consumer now
(and this further changes in the upcoming Archiva 2.0 release).

We can probably help with those errors individually, although if you are looking for a clean
attempt you can move the Archiva database and indexes out of the way and restart it - that
should certainly correct the issues if you can afford the time and CPU cycles to reindex.
