need a workaround for ft min word len



4:04 am on Jun 2, 2013 (gmt 0)

i cannot find a way to edit the ft_min_word_len on my server,

does anyone know a workaround so that i can still allow search if the characters entered are lower that the current ft_min_word_len which is four?

one workaround, where every word, that has less than 4 characters is supplemented with _ or some other char, and the same is done with every searched keyword that is less than 4 characters.

Question, why can't you edit it? Is the my.ini file not editable? If you edited it but it didn't take effect, did you do the following:

1. Restart the server.
2. Rebuild the indexes on the tables where you're using a fulltext index?
