In prior versions of QuickFinder Server, the term “search site” was defined as a collection of one or more indexes and related configuration files. To avoid confusion with the term Web site, the term was changed wherever it appeared in the documentation and in the variables and parameters. A search site is now referred to as a “virtual search server.”
New variables and parameters that parallel the term virtual search server have been added. They function identically to the previous variables and parameters, and the old variables and parameters can still be used.
Similarly, the term “collection” has been changed to “index.”
We recommend that you start using the newer variables and parameters in order to avoid confusion.
