Rationale

After applying customisations, you need to rebuild the indexes. This is required after each change in the indexes configuration.

Procedure

Login to your server:

http://wiki.lib.sun.ac.za/index.php/SUNScholar/Prepare_Ubuntu/S01

Create a scripts folder.

mkdir /home/dspace/scripts

Create the script.

nano /home/dspace/scripts/build-indexes

Copy and paste the following.

#!/bin/bash

#####################################################
## Select an option for index build/creation below ##
## Uncomment the relevant lines below              ##
#####################################################
## REINDEX: This option will reindex an existing index that has no new modifications.
#echo "Re-indexing existing indexes... Please wait"
#/home/dspace/bin/dspace update-discovery-index -b

## RECREATE: This option will recreate indexes after new index modifications.
#echo "Re-creating new indexes... Please wait"
#/home/dspace/bin/dspace update-discovery-index -f

#######################################################################
## This is only required if you use the old browse indexes           ##
## Since DSpace version 4.2, discovery is default                    ##
## Uncomment the lines below with a single hash to enable, if needed ##
#######################################################################
#echo "Building non-SOLR search and browse indexes... Please wait"
#sudo service tomcat6 stop
#sleep 5
#/home/dspace/bin/dspace index-init
#sudo service tomcat6 start
