Re-index entire website
Posted by Azlan Adnan on 19 October 2009 05:25 PM
Problem cause:
The issue of normal search indexing is due to many factors of environment such as networking speed, numbers of content and files to index. Since there is memory allocation, script time execution setting are also could be affected to this scenario.

Command line indexing

1 - AMS access
2- Server access to AMS server
3- Make sure there is no server reboot during the indexing process. Otherwise had to redo all the steps again.

Step 1:
Login to AMS and go to tools > search/indexing.

Step 2: Tick "Search entire website" and "Save list of URLs to index into a file" and click "apply" button. Please wait until the process dump url to the temporary file finised.

Step 3: Once the above process done. The command to run into AMS server will appear. Copy the command.

Step 3: Login to AMS server via SSH / local console. Execute "screen" command to open new screen for background process.

Step 5 : Paste the command generated by AMS. From this point, the process of indexing is depending on numbers of article to index. You can safely close the console and let's the process running in background.

Step 6 : Checking the process. By issuing "ps -ef | grep indexer". If there is no result return means the indexing executed sucessfully.
