[Subject: Possible problem searching multiple indexes if one file returns
Hello. I've recently installed swish-e in test mode at:
....where a user can optionally search multiple indexes or a specific
index (search syntax implemented as per the documentation (-f indexfile1
This was working a couple of days ago and stopped working yesterday
afternoon, such that when one index returned zero hits, results/hits from
the other index(es) were ignored and a result of zero documents found is
returned..... Thus a search for "lexis" was resulting in...
Index1: zero documents
Index2: 11 documents
Combined Index1 and Index2: zero documents
Then, mysteriously, this problem has disappeared this morning (though I
have in the meantime made no changes to the perl script --I PROMISE).
I wonder if anyone has encounterd this situation or can provide some
explanation (short of aliens installing mystery patches)? Any ideas?
