XF 1.3 Rebuild search index


Active member
My site has a couple million posts, and I've been getting weekly errors saying I need to rebuild the search database.

I've been doing so manually. Is there a way to create a daily cron job to get this done?

I am assuming I need to "create new cron entry." But what do I enter in the boxes?

If you have that many posts, you may want to consider the Elastic Search add-on.

MySQL typically struggles once there are 1m posts.
