Acts_as_ferret inconsistent results

Hi Guys,

I am using acts as ferret and the latest version of ferret to carry out
searches on might sight. These give rather strange and inconsistent
results using fuzzy search (through use of find_by_contents and tildes
in the query).

I can carry out a search a get one set of results. Then carry out the
search again and get a different results. For one certain query
acts_as_ferret randomly returns one set of two distinct sets of search
results.

What is going on here? Why doesn’t it give the same thing everytime?

I am the only one using this server and I’m not adding new data or
telling it to reindex or other things like that as I search.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

Scott,

Had problems with ferret too. I tused to be that it was pretty
accurate but it crashed randomly. A few weeks back it started to act
more randomly although it hasn’t crashed on me in a while. In the end
I had to switch back to MySQL fulltext searches. Something tells me
that the last upgrade messed something up.

Sincerely,

AEM
