  • Rebuild search index problem

    Hello,
    Today I decided to empty the search index an rebuild it from new. Mainly because I changed the minimum search length from 4 characters to 3, and it seems that it needed to be rebuild to notice words of 3 or more characters in the search results.
    I had the bad luck that I lost my connection while it was on about the thread 20,000 (maybe a little more). After I got my connection back, I decided to start over from that number (20,000) until the end. My question is, if is OK to start from where I was left of, or is better to start again from 0? Or is just the same?

    Thanks

      Thanks eva,
      This time, I'll leave it like this... because my users are desperate... the board is been closed all day. I'll do it again from 0 in the next few weeks maybe after midnight... not during the day, that was some of my mistakes.

      Anyhow... what I did should not cause any problems, right? My board should work fine... I hope...

        yup should be fine only thing is if you missed a few threads in the index they'd left out of search results
