Problem with search function on vbulletin 4.

I upgraded my board to vb4.. Mostly everything was straight forward, but now the search feature is not working properly. When you try to run a search, its giving a database error. I checked the permissions on the ftp site for search.php, which was 755.

I want the search feature to work, or at least is there a way to put vb3 search feature back on (the users seemed to like the older one a lot more)

Are there any third party search options that could probably solve my problem? Maybe even run better than the built in search feature?

Thanks in advance!

What is the database error? Did you rebuild the search indexes when you finished your upgrade?

If you have a dedicated server, you have the option of installing sphinx.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)
