In Bigace v3 the MySQL search was replaced with Lucene.
Currently Bigace indexes the following data automatically when adding or updating/saving:
- Pages (metadata and content)
- Image metadata (like name, description ...)
- File metadata (like name, description ...)
- Docx (MS Word 2010)
- Pptx (MS Powerpoint 2010)
Re-indexing is the process of reloading all content into the search index. This process is, depending on your amount of data in Bigace, pretty time- and memory consuming. You should not use this function unless you have pretty good reasons for it.
Legal reasons could be:
a crashed index
a missing index after Bigace migration
