Rebuilding Search Indexes


We've got some cases regarding index problems. The possible errors that can be observed may look like the following ones:
  1. Could not find file "C:\sitecore\SitecoreInetpub\indexes\master\system\_1jql.fnm".

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. Exception Details: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file "C:\sitecore\SitecoreInetpub\indexes\master\system\_1jql.fnm".

  2. docs out of order

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. Exception Details: System.SystemException: docs out of order
This can be cured by completing the following. Rebuild your search indexes in the Control Panel (see the picture below): If it doesn't help, try to manually remove all index files in the following folders:
  • indexes/archive/archive
  • indexes/core/system
  • indexes/master/system
  • indexes/recycle bin/recycle bin
  • indexes/recyclebin/recyclebin
