I'm happy to report 3-character term searches are working. Whoo! :D
Search found 88066 matches: 850
Searched query: +850
What that means is... we are where we were, and things are normal again :lol: :wink: And it also means you can search for (down to) 3-character terms, like "850", or "V70", or "740", or "ABS", or "CEM", etc.

Seems like that should be normal behavior, but alas, it's not. When a server gets created, MySQL, the database software on the server, is set to allow a minimum of 4 characters for any search term as a way of providing a type of safety net.

The lower you set this, the more work a server has to do, and the more likely it is to have a lot of searches at once, bogging the system and causing unresponsive server situation, when everybody gets a "This page isn't working" or "Error establishing a database connection".

But things are stable here and 3 character searches won't cause any problems, and didn't anyway on the previous server.

The search component is still indexing the 500k+ MVS Forums posts to build a search library, so please be patient if you don't find something you know is there. It should be done within 24 hours.

I think I fixed board emails, but I'll have to get confirmation from you all.

I found a configuration that works... for a test email. Now we wait to see if we're getting Topic Reply notices etc.

Flags are important.

Remember, no flag , no country.

That’s how Britain stole India

Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
