Full text search and & sign as a part of the keyword

0 votes
34 views

I have this full text search query

 SELECT name, org_id, address_id
 FROM organization
 WHERE org_active='Y' AND MATCH(name) AGAINST('AB&C*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)

and I'm not getting any results. And there is a org AB&C, Inc. My assumption is the ampersand sign as a part of the keyword. Any idea?

Actually, looks like I'm wrong. For testing purpose I made an org "Comp&Me"
When search for "Comp" it's gonna be shown on the list.

When search for "Comp&" it's also gonna be shown. But "Construction Company" as well.
Then I changed the name of the test org to "Com&Me". Searching for "Com", the test org is gonna be listed.
Another correction: Searching for "Com", the test org is NOT gonna be listed but all others will.
Searching for "Com&" no results at all.

I did a test install of Fedora 19 on a spare machine and discovered that MySQL is no longer part of the Distro being replaced by MariaDB.

Has anyone tried to run WordPress in conjunction with MariaDB and if so any problems.
