I've been a 2.4 user for a long time and trying to dive into SS3, starting with the tutorials and I can't even get past the site search. My tutorial is bombing trying to do a search with the following error:
[User Error] Couldn't run query: SELECT DISTINCT count(*) FROM "SiteTree_Live" WHERE ( MATCH (Title, MenuTitle, Content, MetaTitle, MetaDescription, MetaKeywords) AGAINST ('documentation*' IN BOOLEAN MODE) + MATCH (Title, MenuTitle, Content, MetaTitle, MetaDescription, MetaKeywords) AGAINST ('documentation*' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND ShowInSearch 0) The used table type doesn't support FULLTEXT indexes
Line 568 in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/SSV3/framework/model/MySQLDatabase.php
I have no idea what that means, but it certainly doesn't look good. I'm testing it under MAMP which is using PHP 5.4.4 and mySQL 5.5.25, any ideas?
This is like hell, I eventually want to be able to upgrade my existing 2.4 site to SS3 but I am using a ton of modules plus stuff I built from tutorials. In my case about NO ONE has updated their module and me trying to do it is bound to be very much like trying to get a stupid search to work. So on a side note, what's the drawback of sticking with 2.4? :0) Will it really just disappear like the Dodo bird? Why do a lot of devs still say they are using it for production and is that a wise idea?
