Search broken?



  • I'm trying to search the forums (slbd, slbd 100, slbd 100% (and yes, I have RC2), wan, nat, anything), but all I get is a Squid-message "zero sized reply" at http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?action=search2

    Trying this on another connection (other computer, building, city, provider) I get an empty page (no Squid there)?

    As I get the 'same' result on 2 completely different tries I'm reasonably confident it is not a problem on my end :) Any idea when it'll be fixed?



  • Looks to be working now, I had issues yesterday too.



  • You have to search from the room of the forum, not inside a forum area as it will restrict the search to just that area.  This has bit me a few times as well.



  • I think what pnieuwkamp is refering to is something else.
    Sometimes the forum-search seems to "hang".

    No matter from where or what you search you get an empty page returned (no text at all).
    Will make a screenshot when it happens the next time to me.



  • When I do a search I'm getting a prompt to download a file. If I do download the file it is blank. I wrote a full web server once in PHP. I'm pretty sure this effect is caused when the server responds with a partial header. In developing my web server I found a nice Firefox add on called 'Live HTTP Headers'.

    Using 'Live HTTP Headers' add on I captured the following when trying to do a search for 'openvpn' I started from this url: http://forum.pfsense.com/

    Yes, that's what I mean.

    Using a (transparant) proxy on pfSense I get the error in the attachment. Without the proxy I get a completely empty page. Not just zero results as if there is nothing in the database matching my keyword, but nothing at all, no HTML or anything.




  • Search is working now thanks!

    Best Regards,

  • Gotta love how it fixes itself after restarting apache + mysql.  Shrugs.
