  • Problem with Rebuilding the Search Index

    I have a problem that sounds similar to these two threads:
    - http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=93133
    - http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=94351

    I emptied my search index. Upon trying to rebuild it, my admin cp browser displays the first 65 posts, and then simply stops. No additional messages are displayed.

    I'm running vB 2.3.4.
    The only hacked php files are user.php and index.php
    1. URL of your forums = www.communityonthe.net/board/
    2. PHP version = 4.3.4
    3. MySQL version = 4.0.17
    4. Apache/webserver version = Apache (where is version listed in phpinfo?)
    5. Server operating system = Linux
    6. Any error message you are getting = none
    Thanks,
    Still Waters

    Try restaring the rebuild at post 66 .

    Rebuild Search index -
    Number of threads to do per cycle 100
    threadnumber to start at 66
    humber of threads to process 0
    Js redirect yes

      Thanks for jumping in.

      I tried doing that. But after a few cycles, I hit a thread with more than 65 posts. Therefore, that thread can't be completely indexed. Besides, in the long-run, rebuilding the search index thread-by-thread can't be the answer, as that's just not practical.

      Please, other ideas?
      Thanks,

        Very weird, May i ask why your rebuilding the index?

        This sounds like a host issue like the scritp has gone past its max execution time

          The index was set with minimum word size of 4, and maximum word size of 20. I want to change those settings.

          Does that seem plausible, given that each set of 65 posts is taking about 1 second to process?

            Yes, it stills sounds like a server issue.

              Thanks for jumping in, Steve. How do I phrase my problem (request for assistance) to my web host, so that they understand the situation and I don't sound like an ISP-challenged customer? Thanks.

                I wish I knew. Upload the phpinfo.php file from the 'extras' directory of the zip file to your forums directory. Then post the URL here. This will help us troubleshoot the problem.

                  Steve, the phpinfo contains "sensitive-looking" information, such as the following (where I replaced number strings with x). What should I do? Thanks.

                  bblastvisit=x; vbcodemode=x; bbuserid=x;
                  bbpassword=x;
                  sessionhash=x; bbadminon=x
                  Thanks,

                    Problem with rebuilding the search index

                    Bumping.

                    Steve, as mentioned above, the phpinfo contains "sensitive-looking" information. Therefore, I'm concerned about posting this publicly. Is this information not "sensitive" and my concern is misplaced?

                    How should I proceed? Thanks.

                      There shouldn't be anything sensitive in phpinfo. We ask for this all the time. If you are looking at the login details, then be aware that this info comes from the person accessing the page. You will see something diffent than I will.

                          Unfortunately that link results in a blank page.

                            The link works fine for me, every time. Perhaps, you caught the server at a "bad" time? Please, try again?
