  • decreasing search index...

    How do I decrease my search index size so that my database is smaller? I'm using beta 5 right now, and if I change the maximum and minimum word size (currently 4 and 20), will this automatically rebuild my search index when I submit the changes? Or do I have to do something else? Also, can I do this while my board is open? or do I need to close it?

    As a note: I'm probably going to change it to like 4 and 12. This should be fine right? - the legend will never die!

    After you change it you need to rebuild the search index manualy

      How do you rebuild it manually?

      If this involves mysql commands, could you provide some actual commands. I'm an extreme newbie at mySQL.

      Also, can I rebuild the index with my board open? - the legend will never die!

        You can rebuild it from the update counters section of the CP.

          Ahh cool thanks. I had looked through the entire control panel, but I never looked in the update counters section. Thanks again.

            To answer your second question, yes you can do it while the board is open but don't do it at peak times as it is very resource intensive for the server.
