Hi Mohd,
I would check to see if the indexer is running, and if the task queue has anything in it.

The quickest way to do this is to visit:
https://[your repository URL]/cgi/counter

This should present a text response. Look for 'event_queue' and 'indexer'.

In EPrints, the fulltext indexing jobs are placed in the event_queue.
The 'indexer' works through this queue.

Normally, the 'indexer' should report as 'running', and the event_queue should be close to zero - meaning the indexer is doing what is needed.

If the indexer is either 'stopped' or 'stalled', try running the indexer with one of these parameters:
~/bin/indexer [status | stop | start]
The indexer writes a log to ~/var/indexer.log - if something is causing the indexer to stop, there may be some information in there.

To see what is actually in the event_queue (rather than just how many items are waiting), in the web interface, go to the Admin menu -> Manage Records -> Tasks.
If there are a lot of items, you can sort the list, or filter on the start time, status etc.

Hopefully that helps!

Dear EPrints Community

I just set up a new repo with the latest Eprints version.

How searching word in pdf (full text) does not return any result.

The PDF is already OCR and searchable.

I already run ./epadmin erase_fulltext_index repo --verbose

Is there anything should I look at?
