The Search Engine Server is installed together with CMS Fiona.
The Search Engine Server itself as well as the search and indexing can be configured by means of system configuration entries.
By means of an external preprocessor the data to be indexed can be modified. This makes is possible, for example, to make uncommon file formats searchable as well.
New collections are created on the basis of configuration files.
Stopwords are words that can be found very often in texts (articles, prepositions, etc.) and are normally ignored in searches.
By means of the thesaurus function of the Autonomy search engine, synonyms can be defined.
Whether hyphens are treated as being parts of words is configurable
The Search Server can be maintained by means of its Tcl interface.
