Need help with Search

I would like to add a text search function to my website so I defined a new search collection in the Lucee Web Admin, pointed it to a folder, and tried ‘Search the collection’.

I got this error. What does it mean and can I do something about it?

Lucee Error (java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError)
Message 	org/apache/lucene/analysis/standard/StandardTokenizer
Stacktrace 	The Error Occurred in /admin/ line 362
called from /admin/web.cfm: line 400

just a wild guess, did you add any content to be searched?

there are hundreds of static HTML pages underneath the URL that I entered …

I think that the error is suggesting that there is a missing Java class. Have you double checked the installation of the Lucene extension?

looks like this was fixed recently, which version of the Lucene Search Engine
extension are you running?

if updating that doesn’t work, you might want to try the latest 5.2.7 snapshot

hi all, I didn’t install Lucee and Lucene, the provider did that … I’ll check that with him …

just so I understand that correctly - I have lots of static HTML files in folders and subfolders underneath the URL that I entered for my search collection. Is that the way it works? just entering a parent folder and everything underneath is automatically searchable? what does “Add/Update path index” do and is that necessary? (when I enter something here, I get the same error)

(btw I want to use text search for German pages)
