In addition to the update of the database schema by manitou-mgr --upgrade-schema, certain changes to the configuration may be necessary when upgrading from a previous version, in order to fully benefit from the new features.
Up to version 1.2, full-text indexing
of attachments contents was set up with plugins such as
When upgrading to 1.3.0 or above, these plugins should be replaced by index_words_extractors
that perform better.
html_indexer plugin is also obsolete. HTML contents are now indexed by default unless the index_words_html_parts option is configured otherwise.
For the search to benefit from the new indexer features such as the unaccent mode, it is recommended to rebuild the entire full-text index as part of the upgrade procedure. This is done by stopping manitou-mdx and running:
$ manitou-mgr --clear-full-text-index $ manitou-mgr --reindex-full-text
By default, the reindexing operation will use only two Unix processes. More
processes can work in parallel by specifying their number with the
--reindex-jobs option. See Section 5, “Inverted full-text index management commands” for more information on reindexing.
