Issues with search index on this site
« on: March 11, 2018, 11:08:14 PM »
I tried to find a specific recent topic in the SMF 2.0.x Support board and searched for it using a word in the subject (ie, 'proxy') but it wasn't returned in the results list (I'm searching by topic subject and sorting by most recent topics first) - the most recent topic in the results list for topics with that word in the subject is from 4 February.

In addition, it seems there are no search results available for topics created after the first week of February - I also searched for the word 'apostrophe' in the same board and the topic 2.0.15 and apostrophe bug from 6/7 February was not returned in the results list.

Bump - I’m still not getting any search results for posts later than 6/7 February.

I'm seeing the same thing...

searchd needs a kick.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

I'm not a server admin, I don't have the power for that, however I vaguely remember enough about Sphinx to know that's the part that needs to be updated - since 2.0 doesn't have any support for pushing content at a search index, it's reliant on the indexer and the search daemon, and I'm pretty sure the issue in this case will turn out to be the search daemon not having rotated indexes lately.

Yep :). I can confirm, it works a lot better then it did a while ago ;).
