How to DISABLE SEARCH
« on: August 04, 2005, 11:19:41 AM »
How do you disable the search function?  Our site has between 700 and 1000 concurrent users at a time the past few days and our dedicated server is exploding.  We`re trying to disable all features that are sucking up system resources as this should be a temporary spike in traffic.  I understand that disabling searches can help but I can`t find that option.

Any other tips?

It's a permission, so you just need to take it away.

Try 1.1 beta 3 with fulltext, that helps search performance a lot. Also are you using any InnoDB tables?

Before disabling the search function why not use FUSE BOX instead

IIRC, that mod is implemented in with 1.1.

Hmm... www.tmlfans.ca.  It's been quite some time since I cleaned up some of the past problems with that forum.  At least a year.... I've learned a few tricks since then ;).

Can you upload the attached file and give me a link to it?
