Matt Mullenweg:

Our current host cannot support a high volume of searches
through the
forum system. The new hosting should be faster.

s  it  safe to assume that it will handle the abnormal load  of  requests
when  2.0  is  released? ~460k X ~10,000 = 4.6 GB per  day  for  downloads
alone.  Put  many  requests  for pages and forum searches on  top  of  it.
OpenOffice 2 was deployed across mirrors prior to the release, for exactly
that reason (and the size of the files, proximity, among other factors).

I don't know much about hosting and servers, I admit.
My problem is related to the relevancy of the results. Before starting this thread I was searching for "blank install"

Now see the results with the old search:

and with the new one:

I am wondering why to have this "new" one if it's totally useless?

Admittedly,  I  got involved in support only a few days ago, so  my  voice
shouldn't  count *ducks down*. And yet, I noticed the same thing. Whenever
I  try  to search for related forum posts which I have seen (often to  in-
crease re-use), I get a load of pages that are irrelevant. I gave up on it
after  a day. The 'old search' or even Google site search seems to be more
valuable for support purposes. Thus, it can decrease the number of repeat-
ed discussions.
