Indexing - How and how often

Postby nef » Thu Sep 23, 2010 6:31 am

How do I get the OJS to run a scheduled task indexing full text articles?
If we run it ourselves on our server, it will index all our journals with all articles, new and old, and it should of course only run the new ones - the un-indexed.
I thought that OJS provided that automatically when you upload an article, but apparently it does not.
How do I solve that problem?

Hi Niels Erik,

My understanding is that OJS indexes articles when galleys are uploaded, so you shouldn't have to run the rebuild script to reindex. However, OJS only automatically indexes HTML galleys by default: to index PDF/PS/DOC, you have to configure the pdftotext/pstotext/etc. parameters in your Once these parameters are set, you *will* have to run tools/rebuildSearchIndex.php to re-index anything that wasn't indexed previously; but after that, any PDF/PS/DOC file that's uploaded as a galley should be indexed automatically.
