Default Search isn't working.

I keep getting "unable to access search daemon."

So yeah, search isn't working... again. :P

Just noticed that myself. Must have been from the DB error the other day.

It'll be fixed soon

The search feature currently just slows the forum right down since it's designed for small forums - at current it'd try searching all 1.1 million posts... which isn't a pretty sight It'll be fixed up soon.

For people wanting to search through the forums...

Google has a nice little way of helping out with this. Use this code:

site:forums.tauonline.org <insert search here>

ex: site:forums.tauonline.org tau army lists

You can't really narrow the search down further by forum (at least, I don't know how you would do it, google seems to ignore you when you put more than just the root into the domain name), but I've found it to be helpful enough if I know exactly what I'm searching for.

Of course, if this puts as much strain on the server as the regular search daemon, I'd vote against it, but it really shouldn't as google maintains their own cache of webpages (I believe, haha).

All of Crazyguy832's advice works - i know this because it's what i've been using to view the forums during server downtime (except for restricted boards such as the Enclaves + Comittee boards which can't be viewed)

Good advice Yes that's fine, and there's no strain on the server since Google does all the hard stuff (actually carrying out the search). Simply showing the TO pages don't create much strain.

The problem we're facing is that, with 1.1m posts, the search engine *tries* to search through all of them. Which isn't a great idea :P There's a program called SPHINX we use instead of the default search engine and that works quite well, although we haven't got around to re-installing that just yet.
