After upgrading to V9.1.1 the user search was not working at all. I have read many posts that the email search was not working for users but for me a search for anything would always return no results.

After many attempts to get this working and much reading I realised the user search uses the global site indexing. After following a guide on optimising your site for performance many years ago I had turned off the site indexing. So I turned this back on and now I get the following error appearing in the log. The user search does not work still but I do see the search index files being created.

Is the user search still not working due to this error or is it something else.
