Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS: the core and the packages/plugins
currently there are about 100 packages maintained (see: https://openacs.org/xowiki/packages), the "contracts" package is not included in this list. if there are volunteers to maintain this package, please step ahead. There might be different versions of the contacts package as well be around.
Concerning search: i did just now a fresh install of oacs-5-10.
* dropped the old DB, created a new one
* started OpenACS, did the usual OpenACS Installation for new databases (fill out the form), restart
* on the fresh instance, "install more packages" and selected tsearch2, xowiki, forums), mounted search, restart
* created a forum and a posting with "hello world"
* waited a little (search::indexer runs every 60s)
* go to /search, type in "hello" -> voilà, here it is.
This is with PostgreSQL 13.1 on macOS. i am very sure, i see the same results on Linux. In your entry in the bug-tracker, you seem to bypass the service-contract, so this seems to be the problem at hand (as Antonio indicated as well). Note, that service-contracts are used in OpenACS for multiple purposes. So, when these do not work under windows, similar problems will show up on other places as well.
I got the point of the criticality of this issue.
I'm currently investigating it and I will come back to you and Antonio as soon as I have something.
BTW: I don't manage to login in "fisheye" and whenever I try to download something that is larger than more or less 3.2 Mb the zip file I receive is corrupted. Could you please help me on this.
When time permits, i will add as well download links on openacs.org for tar files (for users without CVS).
don't bother, I thought that by logging in you could have more features, less restrictions; I'll use CVS.
don't bother ...
too late. Via  one can now download directly the packages as .apm files (.apm files are tar.gz files including a manifest, an can be as well locally installed via the apm manager).
I finally found the issue that prevented the Search from working.
My bad, I had a misaligned configuration with some packages not working properly. Getting everything using CVS fixed the issue.
Now I have a further problem: if I add something like a comment, a post in a forum and the like, it appears in the search. If I create a new page in Xowiki, its contents do not appear in the search. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you in advance,
Regarding XoWiki, from the top of my head: is the page you have created published?
xowiki/admin/list, then check if the square beside the page name is green (published) or red (unpublished)
The indexer runs every 60 seconds by default, so you might need to wait a bit to see the result of your changes.
After editing a page, the content is added to the search-queue, which is processed every minute. If there is a problem with indexing, you should see a message in the error.log from this step.
thank you for all your suggestions.
I'm using subsistes and xowiki is in one of them.
I noticed this error:
As soon as I fixed it, and I'll report it in BT, the search started to work also inside xowiki.
Once again thank you to all of you,
if I add something like a comment, a post in a forum and the like, it appears in the search. If I create a new page in Xowiki, its contents do not appear in the search. What am I doing wrong?
Is "re-index" ad proc schedule working fine?
