If you ran into the above error during Solr integration with Sitecore, you more than likely missed the step where you needed to configure an IOC for Sitecore. If so, go through sections 3.3, 3.4 of the Search and Scaling Guide.

Essentially, you need to pick the correct DI framework dll and drop it into Bin (Castle Windsor more than likely) and do the following:

Open the Global.asax file and in the first line, replace the following: Inherits="Sitecore.Web.Application" With Inherits="Sitecore.ContentSearch.SolrProvider.CastleWindsorIntegration.WindsorApplication"
IOC Containers

Autofac
<%@Application Language='C#' Inherits="Sitecore.ContentSearch.SolrProvider.AutoFacIntegration.AutoFacApplication" %>
Ninject
<%@Application Language='C#' ' Inherits="Sitecore.ContentSearch.SolrProvider.NinjectIntegration.NinjectApplication" %> 
StructureMap
<%@Application Language='C#' ' Inherits="Sitecore.ContentSearch.SolrProvider.StructureMapIntegration.StructureMapApplication" %> 
Unity
<%@Application Language='C#' Inherits="Sitecore.ContentSearch.SolrProvider.UnityIntegration.UnityApplication
NOTE: Do not forget to deploy any and all dependent assemblies mentioned in the Search and Scaling guide.

Update: Latest documentation from Solr on how to configure Solr can be found here.
