Issues with Full Text Search / Search Function

I’ve just installed FullTextSearch following these guides:

https://github.com/nextcloud/fulltextsearch/wiki/Basic-Installation
https://fribeiro.org/tech/2018/02/07/nextcloud-full-text-elasticsearch/

and I’m having 2 issues:
A. The Live index service is not working.
I have created the file:
/etc/systemd/system/nextcloud-fulltext-elasticsearch-worker.service
with this content:

[Unit]
Description=Elasticsearch Worker for Nextcloud Fulltext Search
After=network.target

[Service]
User=apache
Group=apache
WorkingDirectory=/var/www/html/nextcloud
ExecStart=/usr/bin/php /var/www/html/nextcloud/occ fulltextsearch:live
Nice=19
Restart=always

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

and this is the output of systemctl:

# systemctl status nextcloud-fulltext-elasticsearch-worker.service -l

This is my /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/samba.conf:

d /var/run/samba  755 root root
d /run/samba  755 root root
d /var/run/samba 2775 apache apache - -

Not sure if it’s correct!

If I run the following:
sudo -u apache php /var/www/html/nextcloud/occ fulltextsearch:index
the documents get indexed.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Upload documents (pdf, txt) into nextcloud

B. Search does not always work.
I cannot find out if there is a pattern. Sometimes It can’t find a file neither by file name or extension.

  1. Upload files into nextcloud
  2. Use Search or Full Text Search
  3. Search by file name or extension

Nextcloud version (eg, 12.0.2):13.0.2.1
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): CentOS 7
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25):
PHP version (eg, 7.1): 7.2.6

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

sizeof(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable at /var/www/html/nextcloud/apps/fulltextsearch_elasticsearch/lib/Service/SearchMappingService.php#216

The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):

<?php
$CONFIG = array (
  'instanceid' => '...',
  'passwordsalt' => '...',
  'secret' => '...',
  'trusted_domains' => 
  array (
    0 => '192.168.1.100',
  ),
  'datadirectory' => '/var/www/html/nextcloud/data',
  'overwrite.cli.url' => 'https://192.168.1.100/nextcloud',
  'dbtype' => 'mysql',
  'version' => '13.0.2.1',
  'dbname' => 'nextcloud',
  'dbhost' => 'localhost:3306',
  'dbport' => '',
  'dbtableprefix' => 'oc_',
  'dbuser' => 'oc_admin',
  'dbpassword' => '...',
  'installed' => true,
  'maintenance' => false,
);

[UPDATE]
It must be related with the app.
If I run in the terminal:
$ curl -XGET 'localhost:9200/nextcloud/_search?q=iso&amp;pretty'

I get more results than in the GUI (local & external files).

For new files files I have to run every time:
$ sudo -u apache php /var/www/html/nextcloud/occ fulltextsearch:index
to get them indexed.

It needs Nextcloud 14 to work.

Did you install all 3 apps?

  1. Do you mean it is planned for the next release? Because latest stable is 13.02.
  2. Where is such thing mentioned? I can’t find something here:
    https://github.com/nextcloud/fulltextsearch

Yes.

Seems to be related with this issue:
https://github.com/nextcloud/fulltextsearch/issues/281

Here: Fulltextsearch v0.7 is Out!

Yes, the first-word-bug is still active. As well as the exact-search-bug Full text search - Elasticsearch v0.7.1

Hope they will disappear in the next beta :wink:
