Search Error


Hi. After creating a database and a search server I’m getting the following error when I attempt to make a search via localhost:5000

Sorry, but your query “(query)” did not match any artists. Please check you used the correct spelling. Sometimes searching for fewer or different words may also help.

I have downloaded searchserver.war from and index.jar from

Then I renamed searchserver.war to ROOT.war and placed the file in /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps

For index.jar file I ran java -Xmx512M -jar $SEARCH_UPDATER_JAR --db-name $DB_NAME --db-user $DB_USER --db-password “$DB_PASSWORD”

Am I missing something?



Hi, @dns_server. Thanks for all the insights you’ve shared regarding compiling the search server. @nicolas.vazquez and I are working on this together and he recently opened this post regarding this query error we’re getting. Please let us know if you might be able to provide any additional guidance in this regard. Thanks again!
