    Sharepoint 2010 Search

    Hello All

    I am new to sharepoint, installed it last week, so I have just started my steap learning curve, and steap it is...

    I have setup my site, added documents etc, which is great, I have then created a basic search site within my main site, when I then go into this, and try to search for a document I have uploaded I dont get anything back, and sometimes an error.

    I have read many posts, which say I need to setup this search in the admin section of the sharepoint site, now this has gone right over my head, I am in need of getting a basic search setup so I can show the guys at the school, what Sharepoint can do, vs our current setup.

    Does anyone have a guide to what I need to do to be able to setup the search for a site that works :-)

    TIA

    I agree SharePoint can be a nightmare but when you start palying with it for a while you start to get used to it...

    Have a look at this...

    Go to Central Admin on sharepoint server

    Click General Application Settings (left)

    Click Farm Search Administration

    Click Search service application (If one isn't listed then let me know and I will make some more instructions)

    Click Content sources (Left)

    Create a crawl schedule and tick "start full crawl"

    If you have already created a schedule hover over Local Sharepoint sites and click arrow and then click start full crawl

    On the left you will have "crawl log"

    click this to look at successes or errors...

    Some errors you can work out from the message others are easy to google.. If not put an update on here and i will take a look...


    Hope this helps.. it managed to get mine working...
