Change search character limit

Is there a way for me to change the minimum character limit (decrease it actually) for forum searches?
No table - read the first link he posted and you will read that you have to change the Mysql configuration file on the server -but please, this should do your admin.
Yes, have your admin do it - as I mentioned, you may have to redo your search index in the ACP afterwards so the new search applies to existing posts!

My advice, if you have a big board, is to instead use the Elasticsearch add-on ($50, I think) available here. Get Slavik to install it for you. That's what I use and I have search on 2 characters.
