Code: Select all
## This mod will index every post in your forum, rebuilding the search tables. ## ## This is useful when : ## ## - You have imported posts from another forum ## - You have lost/deleted/corrupted your phpbb search tables in one way or another ## - You want to transfer your db to another server (you can skip the copying of search tables ## which are usually quite a lot of MB and create them on the new server from scratch) ## - When you have updated the "search_stopwords.txt" file (running the mod will remove these words from the search tables) ## - Users cannot find what they are searching for in your forum (although there could many other reasons for this) ## ## You can stop whenever you like and the next time you run it again, you'll have the option of ## continuing from where you left off. ## ## It may take a long time to show its progress (depending on "Posts per cycle" and "Time limit"), ## so please do not move from its progress page until it is complete, unless of course you want to interrupt it.

Does it work with 2.0.10 though? That is the version I've got installed right now and I really must move server before upgrading..

We flapped gums on your development board. I am the one with 706,000 posts. I have already moved my phpbb to a new working server, but I got so wrapped up in my DNS-switch timeline (wanting to do the transition this weekend) that I forgot to do the indexing before I did it.
Let me ask you this; the phpbb tables on my old server are up to date through yesterday. Could I run your mod on THOSE boards and then import it to my new server, and then will my new server phpBB continue building this index based on the one I imported?
