I saw in the 4.6.8 release notes that support has been added for using MySQL’s fulltext indices for history search, and can see the change in the table structure on my installation. But I am curious what sort of configuration changes are needed to move from using Sphinx to the MySQL fulltext search.
I like Sphinx, but welcome the elimination of the dependency, as it introduces a bit more complexity into the server configuration.
I commented out the Sphinx configuration in the
config.php file (
cSEARCHPORT), but when I tried that, I got very strange search results (it looked almost like a list of all recent requests regardless of whether or not they contained matching text).
Is there another configuration option required to take advantage of the MySQL indices? Or is the feature still in the works?
