Moodle 2.5: no results in search or Course Categories
 

Hi,

I came to work this morning to find that I cannot see any courses returned from a course search (using /course/search.php) or see any course listed when navigating through the Course Categories block.  Thankfully, courses are still accessible to our users on their My Home page, or as an admin if I go to Site Administration > Courses > Add/Edit courses.

Any ideas where to look?  Could this be a database issue? Thanks in advance.

We found the problem and fixed it, it was a problem with a setting in our DB cache for the coursetreecategory function.

Can you give us more details on what you have changed?  Is this a database setting, in the config.php file, or is this a code change?  Much appreciated!

Hi Carson,

You can set this in the admin interface, under Site Administration > Plugins > Configuration.  The store mapping for the "Course categories tree" definition was set to map to a different cache store mapping name. We changed this and everything worked from then on.
