Rebuilding search indexes

If you move a Jiglu server to a new machine, restore from a backup or upgrade to a new version with incompatible search indexes then you may need to rebuild the text search indexes.

  1. Connect with MultiTool and choose the Search index menu (S) option.
  2. If you are upgrading, then choose the Delete all indexes (D) option to delete the existing indexes.
  3. Choose the All (A) option to create the new indexes.

You may want to monitor the indexing in the system logs.

The search menu also provides the option to rebuild the indexes for a particular resource type or a particular group, though in normal operation this should not be required.
