Automatic refresh of Wiki search index

posts: 289 United States

Issue: When performing a search, pages that have been recently created do not appear in search results until Refresh wiki search index now link is clicked under Search Admin
Solution: Documentation on the Search Admin pages on ))TikiDocs(( says that for large sites you should create a Cron job to automate this process.
Problem: How does one go about doing this? What function/process would Cron call exactly?

There have been a couple of forum posts on this. The first one talks about Setting Cron Job for Search but doesn't really resolve the issue. The second offers up a Search refresh hack, but this has not been validated as a legitimate resolution.

Is there some official or "right" way of doing this?

As always, any help is much appreciated.
