If the config was actually designed for 7.7, then it will work in 8.0. 
If it was designed for 5.x or 6.x, there's a chance it won't work.

It sounds like you have a solrconfig.xml file and a schema file that are 
not matched to each other.

The schema file found here looks to me like it will work in 8.0:

I think instead of using a solrconfig.xml that comes with Solr, you 
should be using the one made for dovecot:

I do see a potential problem with that config, though ... there is 
config that sets the df parameter (default field) to a field named 
"_text_" (with underscores) ... this field does not exist in the schema.
