Searching for files in EPiServer CMS 5
Having trouble finding your uploaded files when searching from the File Manager inside EPiServer? Well, here is a quick guide on how you should set it up.
Type of files
To support search of Office 2007 or pdf files, you need to install the Microsoft Filter Pack and the Adobe PDF IFilter on your server.
Getting your files indexed
To ensure that the files are indexed correctly follow the following steps:
- Delete the contents of the index folder inside your VPPs
- Open the EPiServer.IndexingService.exe.config (which is located in the C:\Program Files\EPiServer\Shared\Services\Indexing Service directory)
- Add your VPPs if they are not already registered
- Do an iisreset
- Restart the service “EPiServer CMS Indexing Service”
