Description

Hi,

when searching for "troubleshooting" on the website [1] I was given some search results which resulted in a 404 like https://tails.boum.org/support/troubleshooting/.

Any idea why this happens?

The ikiwiki search plugin cleans up from the Xapian DB pages that are deleted from the web interface, but it doesn't do so for pages deleted directly in the underlying Git repo. It might be doable to fix that problem but it seems to require lots of work.

Would it be significantly less work to rebuild the whole Xapian DB every
week for example?

It's a pity that we don't have stats on how many people hit these 404 :(

Don't we have access to Apache's error.log?

Indeed so in theory yes and I shouldn't have said that.

Now, I've been playing a bit with raw Apache logs and it's highly
inefficient (at least for me) to extract useful information from them.
So except very simple cases, I think it's fair to say that we don't yet
have the tools in place to really do useful web analytics. The news is
that I really want to work on that :)
