Re: can't get fulltext to work

The reason you're not getting some results is because FULLTEXT, by default, does not match on words less than 4 characters in length. In order to get FULLTEXT indexes to match shorter words, you must adjust the ft_min_word_len configuration variable. You can read more about tuning this here:
