Thanks - I have mentioned this in the chat but will post here too.

Search and other search related features (tags, active posts, self posts, etc) are currently inactive due to an attack we experienced this morning. It was exploiting a weakness in PHPBB forum software that we use and took down the site for about 1 minute (denial of service attack). This happened twice during an interval of a few minutes and the third time we disabled search to prevent the server from becoming unresponsive. We are looking to patch the exploit and will enable search right after. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello. The post you found is from 2010 but we are having the same issue as we have had 6 years ago.... there is a Denial of Service attack in progress that started about 8 hours ago, focused on search. We have been banning IP Addresses and doing other things; however, we are only being reactive in that case. As the result, we had to disable search-related functionality to keep the site up and running.


We will re-enable search-related features either when the attack stops or once we have been able to write code preventing flooding of the search system, which will happen sometime on Monday. So.... worst case scenario, it will have to wait till Monday.

Sorry about this and appreciate your understanding.

Thank you - looks like the move to https broke the search. We are working on it.

Meanwhile, please use this link: https://cse.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx ... -z9cduzcoi

(It should provide the same results)

Yes, realised that after some brain-wrecking - since it's google search integrated into the forum, just checked whether google search outside of the forum was working and BINGO!

Thank You

Please refresh that page multiple times or hit CTRL+F5 or SHIFT+F5 a few times; that should remove the browser cache for that page.

Hi, the search function doesn't seem to be working. Says 'access denied' - any internal server maintenance issue or something else?

Thank you

Well, specific links were working - only when i was trying to look up something using the search function, it relayed "access denied" message. However, seems to be back on.

Many thanks for such a prompt response!
