I just discovered this:
"They can work even without a FULLTEXT index, although a search executed in
this fashion would be quite slow. "
But then I'm kicked in the nuts because:
"Full-text indexes can be used only with MyISAM tables"
When I try a query on an InnoDB table:
"SELECT * FROM categories WHERE MATCH (name) AGAINST ('+ELECTRONICS' IN
"Error Code : 1214
The used table type doesn't support FULLTEXT indexes"
So, what is the deal? Am I missing something?
And if I can't use boolean searches on InnoDB tables with mySQL 5.0.18,
Then WHEN will I be able to?
In the mean time, what is the best way to generate this equivallent
functionality via PHP or some other mySQL 5 sanctioned way? I've seen
several different examples on the web, but don't know which to commit to.
