Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Search problem

Postby Inna » Mon Dec 11, 2006 8:27 am

I just upgraded OJS 2.0 to version 2.1.1.
Everything seems to be working fine except search.
As far as I can tell the reason for search not working is that article_search_object_keywords, article_search_objects are empty.
I didn’t have any error messages while upgrading the database.
So, the question is how do I populate those tables, so search works again.
Thank you for any help.

Hi Inna,

First, if you're using PDF articles, make sure that the text extraction tools in config.inc.php are properly configured; see the index[application/pdf] directive.

You can then re-generate the index using the tools/rebuildSearchIndex.php script.
