quick question. mysql defaults to a 4 character limit on full text searches. some of the keywords in my application are 3 characters so i'm going to change the configuration file and restart. i know that for the changes to take effect, i have to recreate all of my fulltext indexes.
my question is...if i change the configuration and reboot, will the already indexed tables at four characters break? e.g. will they still work? will it break anything if i don't reindex some of my indexes?
thanks...i hope this makes sense. i'm in a large production environment with way too many indexes to recreate without missing something...i just want to make sure they'll work the "old" way.
