Query in quotes breaks search


We're having an issue with searching phrases within quotes. It isn't consistent, for example, if you search "bea feitler design" the results come up as expected. If you search "the new literacy," this page error is returned:

When searching the same phrase without quotes, it works fine.

Any help on this would be appreciated. Thank you!


  • The quotes are triggering creation of a temporary table, and your mysql server has limits on how large those tables can be. You should consider changing your mysql configuration increasing the cap for "tmp_table_size"

  • Thanks, that worked! We increased the cap to the size of our largest table.
