Table of Contents

The "rebuildFulltextSearchTable.php" maintenance script rebuilds the database table used for the full-text search feature. The maintenance script was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki 2.5.01 and currently only works if the configuration parameter $smwgDefaultStore is set to SMWSQLStore3 (= default setting) and here only for MySQL/MariaDB1 and SQLite2, i.e. PostgreSQL3 and SPARQL stores are currently not supported. Note that this script enforces an five second countdown period prior to its actual execution.

It is recommended to run this script in daily intervals as part of the general wiki maintenance.

Important noteImportant Note: If Semantic MediaWiki is not installed in its standard path then the "MW_INSTALL_PATH" environment variable must be set. See README in the maintenance directory.
