Debugging EPiServer Search


Hi forum


I'm trying to setup EPiServer Search to index the CMS, but so far I'm unable get any hits. Do you have any good advice on how to debug this?

I think the Index service is running, because I can see files being generated at the place where I have specified the index to be stored.

According to this post:, there should be a hidden page where I can trigger reindexing of the site: http://yoursite/EPiServer/CMS/Admin/IndexContent.aspx. I can't access the page, on my 7.5 site. Has it been removed?

Thank you for your help.

It's still there. In your example url above it's important that the /EPiServer/ part is your secure path to the UI.

In you search Index folder do you have more than two files in the Main subfolder?


Heres a good blog post about search configuration:

Hi Per


Thank you for your reply. I found the page. It was located under a different path.

After I started a new indexing process, I'm able to get results from EPiServer Search. I have a feeling that I had some issues during the setup, so that not all content was indexed properly.
