FTS: minimum length of search string


Hi all,

After I enabled the FTS I can’t get result when I try to search words which only has 3 characters.
If I put the “subject:” before it,n no problem at all.(I know, that FTS searches only in the ticket content by default.)
So Is this a hardcoded limitation for FTS?

RT version is 4.4.2.




So, changing the minimum word length full-text parameter, e.g. ft_min_word_len for MyISAM on MySQL search indexes is solved my problem ( the default value is 4).

Don’t forget restart the service and reindex the table ( for MyISAM: REPAIR TABLE <table_name> QUICK; )
